Anonymous, 30 Jun 2009"So when did V8 come out before N85? Why 5800 only support micro-USB data transfer but not cha... moreI did thought Moto came out with micro-USB charging before everybody else with its V8/U9.
I also wonder why the almighty brand, with at least 4 times the sales of Moto, and possibly at least 4x the R&D resources, still can't figure out how to charge a phone via USB..."18+ months" after Moto released its U9/V8
Forget about this, we will use solar energy charger on every phone very soon. There will be no microphone or data soket either, bluetooth 4.x replace them all.
This is good news. Means all phones would be able to charge of the USB ports of computer. I'm so happy and relieved.
it is wonderful news ...and i think companies should packs common accessories separately exclusively so that it should be on customer`s decision to buy them with phone or leave them if he already have such accessories .this will reduce cost burden and also wast control etc
I welcome this decision. Really great. This will help greatly especially on travel (less cables need to carry). Also on emergency, any charger can help you. Thank you EU.
Nokias Micro USB is looking different now. (mobile E71). Hope new models will be changed.
[Apple's decision also really surprising. :) ]
Sid, 30 Jun 2009What nonsense! MicroUSB is the worst charging socket ever produced. It breaks the fastest out ... moresid you only deal in accessories, we are actually the mobile phones and accessories designers and Engineers, do not argue and tell its nonsense, ur job is to sell so be a salesman, comment but with elegance do not put ur jar headed ideas onto others
Now how about a standard 3.5m headphone jack for audio.
SE are you listening!!!!!
It's amazing when you use common sense. Now lets see where else we can use it.
Realy a goog news for mobile user, mobile phone companier should also work on keypad of cell phones the position and number of the button should be same. it will be a good effort to make the mobiles user friendly, head phone jeck can be consider.
that would make our life much more easier.
they should've done it years ago.
Sid, 30 Jun 2009What nonsense! MicroUSB is the worst charging socket ever produced. It breaks the fastest out ... morethey're just using the miniUSB as a BACKUP charger, not as the standard charger.
of course the charging speed really sucks with the miniusb and no one can argue with that. but it's good to know that you do have a spare charger when in a pinch.
That is the real good news. As i always wanted to buy phones other than Sony Ericsson but didnt do that because of all the fuss about chargers ............and i got a suggetion
they should make same earphone socket for all phones as well.
What nonsense! MicroUSB is the worst charging socket ever produced. It breaks the fastest out of any other charger tips out there. I should know, I deal with cellphone accessories as part of my business! The best Charging tips are those of Nokia, Sony Ericsson and the Motorola Mini USB.
