Universal Mobile Phone Charger

A few days ago I read in the Daily Telegraph that the big mobile phone companies such as Sony Ericsson, Nokia and Motorola have agreed on a universal charger which would be the same for all phones. The charger would be a Mini USB one. And it would only consume half of what other chargers would consume in standby. This would be implemented by 2012.

Although it didn't say in the article, I figured out that this also meant that there wouldn't need to be a separate socket to connect the phone to the computer. This would reduce the weight of the phone.

One of the best ideas ever thought out but it is long overdue. It should have been introduced when mobile phones were first made.Well at least now the companies have had some sense to do this. I am hoping that there will be no delays and it will work.
