Just ordered my N1 and I plan on buying the 1600mAH battery and use the OEM as a backup. I can see myself using the phone a lot just like my winmo phone, which I used two batteries in one day. I bought a Seidio snap case for my winmo phone and got pretty annoying opening it to change out the battery(not to mention the wear it left on the actual phone).

My question is are there any hard cases out there that make it easy to replace the battery? Just as long as I don't always have to struggle to pry it open. Am I better of getting a silicone case?
