Sony TX1 - Canon SD980IS

Here is a comparison of specifications:

Both cameras are good choices.

Which is better, depends upon what features you want/need.

The Sony is faster if you are taking photos as fast as it can.
It has a few "gee whiz" features such as "sweep pan" for making panorama photos.
You may want to buy a second battery for the Sony because those very thin batteries have a reputation for running down too quickly.

I suggest you read a full review on each camera and pick the one that sounds good to you.

Battery Life

The Canon you mentioned does have a better battery life.

The Sony you mentioned is only 0.7 inch thick.
Which requires an unusually thin battery.
There have been complaints that a very thin battery will loose power just sitting in the camera.
That is unusual for a rechargeable Lithium battery.

Maybe they have reached the limit on how thin you can make a rechargeable lithium battery.
