Micro USB

The USB Implementers Forum has recently announced that we loyal consumers will all be shelling out a few extra bucks as new mobile handsets, PDAs, and digital cameras adopt a new, smaller "Micro USB" adapter for syncing/charging. As the RAZRs of the world get thinner and thinner, so too must the port with which we charge it. While there is no apparent size specification just yet, all we know is that it'll be smaller than the current implementation, and inevitably require additional purchases in order to use. Additionally, the USB IF stated the new standard would support USB On-The-Go, and will feature a "stainless steel shell" to reportedly yield more than 10,000 insertion cycles before your charging port is rendered completely inutile.
