    I am so excited to get my new phone tomorrow! I know a lot of us are excited. I feel that I need to get prepared, however, with the accessories that are out there. I have a Docking station for my D2G and its great to just toss it on there instead of plugging it in every time. Also, I had a full skin that was clear for my OG and it was great. This phone is really really light and thin. I just was wondering what the options are for cases. lets get a chat started about what accessories everyone uses and why.

    I am in the market for a docking station and saw the article on the 3 different available. But why was one called the HDMI dock? Il try to find a link and update in a sec for you all to see what I am referring to.

    EDIT: Here are the three I saw.

    Cool, it seems like a great dock. I'm excited to use the NFL redzone app on the Nexus with the dock, can finally watch all the TD's scored on a big beautiful screen.

    I carry my phone in a belt holster without a case. Have not been able to find one yet big enough for the Nexus. Anybody know of any?

    About the docking stations. I like the horizontal one (thats the first link in the OP) and was reading some comments and some people were saying that the three charging dots were capable of audio out. can anyone shed some light on this?

    Well when its docked, there is an audio head phone Jack in the back of the dock that allows audio out. So some how audio is transmitted from those 3 "prongs"

    Where is the extended battery? Can't find it for sale on Verizon or Amazon. I read that it can still use the standard cases w/the 2100 mAh battery, which is very cool.

    Really love that the "three dots" on the docks provides both power and audio out for the phone in the docks...that's a great update over the capability on my D2. I saw another post that a Nexus dock that VZW was selling did not have the three dots, so check before buying if you get from VZW. I need to use the car dock w/a vent mount that I have now w/my D2 and really like, so I'm hoping I can get the Nexus mount to work with it.

    I couldnt find anything either. I have seen pics on the net of what looks like the Verizon casing for the extended battery. I would call them tomorrow and seem if they have it. In addition to them Best Buy or Costco. No doubt in a few weeks if not sooner they will be online at most every retailer on the web.
