Got my accessories, including the HTC extended battery!
I decided to stop by my local VZW Corporate store and check on the Thunderbolt. Confirmed when they'd be opening, but didn't get a good idea of how many they'd have.
While I was there, one of the employees was putting out new items, all accessories for the Thunderbolt! I decided to pickup the screen protector, the silicon case (not sure if this will work with the extended battery), the extended battery, and the vehicle mount (which surprisingly does not include a car charger!).
For comparison's sake, I have my Tmobile G1 and a battery from the G1 in the pics.
I don't have the actual phone yet - so I can't show you what the extended battery door will look like on the phone itself.
Hopefully the pics aren't too big, I resized them to 1280x960...

Bad news -- based on my quick look at the Window and Dash Vehicle Mount - the Extended battery door will not fit with the mount.
Not a huge deal since you can just swap back to the original door and battery, but sort of a pain in the rear since you have to turn off the phone to do the swap.

Does the car mount have a cut out where a charger can be plugged into it? This is the trickiest accessory to get for this phone.
I don't want a window mount, I prefer vent or cupholder. All the generic models out now can hold the device but most seem to block the charger slot.MUY PRONTO - verb - A mystical statement derived from the release of the HTC Thunderbolt to mean anywhere from 1 day to eternity.

Screen protectors were $12.99, $9.74 with my discount and it comes in a pack of 3. The sales rep told me when I came back tomorrow to get the phone I could bring the screen protectors with me and they'd apply one to the phone for me.
