Chinese Government to Standardize Phone Chargers (MobileBurn)
It's hard to think of good reasons why this shouldn't be a standard everywhere. Especially my desk, where one can find no less than seven or eight different phone chargers laying around on any given day.
Every phone should have 3 ports:
1) USB small size, for transfer and charging. And RIM, make sure Blackberrys can charge using every other charger on the planet that uses this size port, as well as a usb-computer cable without running software on the PC
2) 2.5 mm headphone/microphone jack
3) 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack
yes, they all should have both 2 and 3.
