Maybe. Lots of preconditions:
1. How does the stock battery hold up? No info on this yet...
2. We'll have to see if the other accessories (if they come out ... home dock, car dock) will work with it.
3. Also we'll have to see what Seidio comes out with.
But for just a little under 2x the power... I think it might work.
About a week ago someone posted a link to Seidio listing a 1600mah battery for $50. Even though it's only 200mah more it does fit under the stock backplate. The way the battery door is on the TBolt I wouldn't want anything that doesn't fit under the stock door, don't want my precious looking like a hunchback. :P

I know no one has any idea how this battery will last (stocker) in the T Bolt.
But...history on smart phones, most notably Android Devices...the battery alone is the single biggest complaint.
Folks can sit there and say the chip is smaller, more efficient...but I'd counter that with a large screen and 4G radio.... could be a wash, no one knows for sure yet.
Let's face it...most of us will be lucky to get 6 hours out of a charge the first week we own the phone (making it ours...setting up everything...and just sitting in awe...lol)
In other words, abusing the heck out of it.
Once you "get in the groove" with the phone, that'll be the real tell tale on battery life.
I brought my first extended battery I ever owned on a phone with my Droid X and its the best thing ever. Its usually worth the extra money to have the phone run longer. but just like @Dajogejr said until its out and we actually play with it won't know. But for me I might just try and buy a new battery as soon as I can their awesome
