    I'm sure they will, but already the battery is basically the size of an extended battery! :D

    What about the NFC tech in the battery? will that have anything to do with anything?

    Kinda worried about this too. Samsung was able to upgrade the battery size pretty quickly, without incident... so I'm gonna take a guess the tech is available to third-party manufacturers as well.

    If anything, the extended battery will be more expensive than the average one because of the NFC tech.

    Quick extended battery dumb question i If I get the extended battery it comes with a new cover - I understand that. BUT does that mean I need to travel with two covers - one for each battery type? Or will the original battery play nice with the extended cover? (My thought was to use the extended always and bring along the original as an emergency replacement if I ran out of juice with no charging options).

    Unfortunately yes, I mean sure the std battery will fit inside but the extd battery plate would not hold it in place if for some reason it moved. I would just test fit it and decide from there.

    Just put a piece of sticky foam on the standard battery and that will hold it in place with the extended cover. I did that on my DX and it works perfect. Never had a problem.

    Bought mine with the extended battery this morning. They had it right on the shelf in the corporate store. Way too early to tell about battery life.

    I also picked one up today but I'm going to get a feel for the stock battery before I use the extended.
