Mobile Industry Agrees: Micro-USB Standard Charger

added by Michael on 17 Feb 2009

VnuNet reports:

By 1 January 2012 the majority of all new mobile phones will support a universal charging connector based on micro-USB, and the majority of new chargers will meet the high-efficiency targets set out by the Open Mobile Terminal Platform.

Who's on board?

The initial group of companies that have joined the UCS initiative include 3 Group, AT&T, KTF, LG, Mobilkom Austria, Motorola, Nokia, Orange, Qualcomm, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Telecom Italia, Telefónica, Telenor, Telstra, T-Mobile and Vodafone.

Noticeably absent from the list are Apple and HTC, despite the fact that HTC currently uses mini-USB for device charging and connectivity.
