Google After countless rumours, leaked screenshots, and what not, Google has officially unveiled Android 2.3, dubbed Gingerbread, today. Accompanying the release of this new Android version is the Nexus S, a Samsung-made successor to HTC's Nexus One, which delivers the pure Google experience - unlocked, without additional crap.

Wouldn't it be great if there were after-market/third-party batteries that were extra thick, that could be added to phones, that combined the battery and the backplate into one? Thus, you get a slightly thicker and easier to hold phone, with all that extra battery life.

Similar to some of the replacement battery packs for Nintendo GameBoy/Color back in the day.

A former coworker of mine actually had exactly that for his G1. I'm not sure where he got it from though.

There are, at least for the Desire. Look on eBay.

I got something a little bit different - a battery that plugs into the USB port and has enough power to recharge the main battery nearly 50%.

Yeah, there are lots of those available, and they come in handy. They just don't look that nice or integrated. ;)
