Universal charger for phones
Just noticed this article over at BBC News.
The world’s biggest mobile phone makers and network operators have backed plans to create a universal phone recharger.
Most manufacturers now produce chargers which work only with their own devices.
The re-charger will consume 50% less stand-by energy than today’s models, the GSM Association (GSMA), an umbrella group for the industry, said.
Firms to back the plan include Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, LG, T-Mobile, Orange, 3, AT&T and Vodafone.
Yes please! All these different chargers and cables are teh suck! Would be nice if digital camera manufacturers take notice as well.
