    Supposed to be for a docking station which has yet to be released - they have released a dock but don't be fooled, it doesn't implement the three connectors

    They are for Charging in the Desk Dock and Car Dock. The Car dock that is out on the U.S Version does not have the pins in the car dock.

    Their kind of like the three sea shells...

    Pretty much useless where they are, and nobody can tell us how to use them.

    Wait a minute, Truss is back again! :p

    Well... I'll let you experiment with that one... I'm not wasting my precious green paper on a piece of plastic. ;)

    I doubt it will work considering that the GSM version is a decent amount thinner.

    Isn't it less than a millimeter difference?

    Why don't you just wait another month and see if the LTE version is released to the states. A couple of retail websites are promising shipping in late January or early February. The single millimeter difference in thickness is more than enough to keep the contact points from lining up for proper use.

    My money is sitting tight until a US reseller is confirming they have the correct unit.

    If they are electrical contacts, they are more likely GOLD! Probably worth about $0.50 in today's market!
