That’s probably the best news for today: a group of cellphones manufacturers have agreed to use micro USB as the sync/charge standard for their future phones.
This might help put an end to the ridiculous situation that many users face: having to buy a set of chargers (wall, car, travel) for each of their phones. Manufacturers will simply have to focus on better user interfaces and battery life instead of charging us $20 for a $1 charger. Nice move – although China did it before.
Interesting move, but does it have to do with the fact that China is actually enforcing this?
