EU standardised the micro-usb charger

for a long time waiting for this;finally this is going to happen,@least in europe.The European Commission has addressed a mandate to the European Standards Organization, according to UberGizmo. ESO has accepted it and are doing the pre-requisite steps that are required to implement the change.

More phone compatibility coming soon

As per these standards, all major phone companies including Apple, Samsung, Nokia, and Sony Ericsson will be coming out with micro-USB charger compliant handsets. According to the commission, these phones should be out early in 2011 and in about two years the chargers will be used predominantly.

Hopefully, cell phone users in India should be seeing this change in standards coming to their handsets pretty soon. Many of us have faced these non-compliant phone chargers for quite a while now and a universal phone charger will be a welcome change.
