EU Welcomes The MicroUSB As A Standard Phone Charger Socket

The European Commission announced that most of the leading mobile phone makers have come to the agreement to adopt the microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) port as a standard European charger socket.

This will allow people to utilize one charger for all the handsets they have around the house.

This is not only convenient but also shrinks the volume of waste caused by unwanted phone accessories. Each year approximately 4 000 tons of accessories are thrown away by users, which change their phone and no longer need the incompatible accessories.

Many companies incl. Nokia, Samsung, LG, Motorola, RIM, etc. have already started producing microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) compatible devices while others like Apple and Sony Ericsson should follow them in the beginning of next year. Wow, that would create quite a few iPhone and iPod accessories ready for the junk.
