Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Motorola, LG, NEC, Qualcomm, RIM, Samsung and Apple have all agreed to use the microUSB standard in their phones made for the European market. Why can't we have that?
No idea. We're surprised that Apple is getting in on this agreement, though, and we're wondering if the microUSB port will supplement or replace the standard Apple 30-pin iPod port. We're guessing supplement.
Update: Looks like Apple's going to provide an adapter. [PocketLint]
