I'm a little confused. Hong Kong customers will get their battery changed to a 5800mAh battery. What is happening elsewhere?

Say, I buy one in the UK, what size battery should I expect? And, if did buy a Eee900 in the UK and got a 4400 battery, how would I go about asking for a larger replacement?
