Mobile Phones to Adopt New, Smaller USB Connector

The USB Implementers Forum, Inc.(USB-IF) today announced the completion of the Micro-USB specification, a new connector technology that will replace many of the Mini-series plugs and receptacles currently used in portable products. This USB-IF connector specification was developed to support the growing miniaturization trend for portable devices, as well as the continued adoption of USB in mobile phones. The Micro-series connectors will be standardized and will continue to maintain the ease-of-use and speed of the USB technology. Nokia will be one of the first big mobile manufacturers to utilize the new Micro-USB specification.Source: USB-IF
