Not another mobile phone charger, please!

Micro_usb_connectorI don’t know about you folks, but I’ve seen more mobile phone charging types than I care to see. You’ve got your proprietary ones, which I absolutely can’t stand. Yes, I’ve been known to NOT get a phone simply due to a proprietary charger. Mini-USBs are among my favorite as don’t require huge ports on the phone and you can typically charge the phone from nearly any computer with a USB port. Now the Open Mobile Terminal Platform (OMTP) wants us to standardize on another charger form factor: micro-USB. The only good news in all of this is that Nokia appears on board with the new micro-USB format; as much as I like their phones, their chargers have a small and thin plug that’s way too easy to break off. Hey did anyone invite Apple to the OMTP? I don’t see their logo on the member page. :)
