If your household is anything like mine, you probably have at a drawer full of mobile phone and gadget chargers. And I bet a fair number of them are for a phone you no longer own. I’m not sure why I have this urge to keep out of date chargers but in the back of my mind I think that I might need them again in the future.
Thank goodness that the 14 major mobile phone companies have agreed to sign up to a new standard connection for mobile phones, these include Samsung, Apple and Nokia.
You can expect to see new mobiles that use the agreed standard micro-USB jack for sale early in 2011. Once we upgrade our phones we will be able to clear out space in that drawer.
