Default Contacts on side of device.

I notice there are contacts on the side of the device. Will these be used for charging?

I really need to get a car docking station for this thing. I'd prefer one that charged as well.

I have asked this question several times and these side contacts look to be for charging like the ones on the back of the Pearl.

I have not seen or heard of anything from RIM but I am sure they are there for a piece of hardware they have in the works. Third party people might do something too. The 8800 is going to be the standard for a while and event he future model numbers should fit the same accessories.
