Default Wireless charging (verizon) cover way to thick :(

Drat. Finally got my hands on a pair of wireless charging backs for the S3. It turns out they're thicker than the stock cover so none of or cases or docks fits.

What a shame. I really wanted wireless charging but not if it changes the form factor. I may try to modify the my stock cover with the inductive coil. It's so thin I'm not really sure why they had to increase the height of the cover. It's not a trivial increase either. It's a lot thicker.

Looks like the international version is the same thickness. Since I'm not really using NFC, I'll go ahead and get the i9300 version.

Lame. Wonder if it's going to be the same for the official Samsung one that's never coming out.
