hohoho, 31 Dec 2010HTC is not in the list.....hope it change thoughAll HTC phones since HD2 are µUSB (earlier were mini USB). A note to gsmarena team - think about adding "type of charge/data connexion" in the phone finder options!
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2010Because you didn't mention a single Motorola phone, which first offered charging via USB as ea... moreI didn't mention Motorola 'cause I don't have one and I only described my own experience, didn't you notice? In 2004-2007 I was using NEC phones, compliant with my carrier's data offers, and in 2008 I used my first and last Samsung phone. Besides, I said that all non i-thing brands are already compliant, that is including Motorola. Moreover, any format that combines data and charging would have done the job, the invention of Motorola is good but the fact that other brands (under strong EU pressure) agreed upon already existing format is the most important.
Whatever the standard, the internal jack in the phone should be robust and easily replaceable. I hated when the fastport on my P990 broke but then the warranty guy just took it out and popped a new one without any kind of solder and it works like new. If only N900 was robust in this sence.

the news only says your phone must charge from a microUSB.
The chargers we're using will jus' have a design changed.
it may be the fixed wire adapter with microUSB for all phone charger.
Rather then fixed charging adapter, the microUSB will connect to a adapter for wall mount charging.
this design is already found in some phones charging kit.
only thing is changed that its become standarized in europe. (may be become globally later)
1st good news for 2011 :)
Alex, 30 Dec 2010I really doubt that Apple will ever use Micro-USB... Steve Jobs would rather stop selling devi... morewow.. stevejobs stop selling iphone in europe ? how much loss could it be.. even though i hate mr jobsless, i believe he's not stupid like you.
Rick, 31 Dec 2010So, instead of bringing a small wall-outlet charger, we have to bring a tiny USB charger, plus... morehave you just came out from a cave? USB to Micro-USB charger doesn't need a computer to charge a device. The cable should come with USB socket-plug which you can plug to any wall socket.
anon aussie, 30 Dec 2010unless of course steve jobs bangs his head on the sink and decides hes revolutionised technolo... morehehehe, the next announcement by apple would be
'people were thinking about micro usb charging from millenniums.. now apple makes it a reality!!
oh my god... i cant believe that apple did say something like that about their facetime thing... surreal man!!!!!
Protecting environment ? BS ! Protecting their revenues, that's what...

That means when you buy a new phone, the phone would come with a wall "adaptor", where you can plug the data cable into, which connects to the wall socket, for mere charging.
If you have a computer next to you, all you need is take the data cable and connect to the computer (without the adaptor), and the cable can charge your phone (and allow data transfer).
Can't believe so many are asking such 6 years old technology....
this is a good idea but many people who dont have a computer cant charge their phone so in this way this isa bad idea
Those Apple fans need to learn to read.
EVEN APPLE SIGNED UP TO THE AGREEMENT. This means new devices manufactured after 01/01/2011 will have it (this also includes any new Apple iPhone devices).
