If they actually do it, which they won't, I'll only have 3 words. (For them and every other company who syncs a device using a connector OTHER than mini-usb.)
ABOUT F***ING TIME.
If we keep injecting common sense into the electronics market, hell we might just make some progress!

Mini usbs are cool. It makes no difference to me really though. I want wifi syncing, but don't care with which type of connector it charges with. Having everyone on the same page would work if you could have one cable for all phones which is highly unlikely.

Green Plug!! But on the plus side the Mophie air already has the micro usb port!!
ps... I want wifi syncing as well!! I want remote wifi syncing!! Here's to dreams!

Ok I didn't realize there was a difference between micro and mini. I use the Air as well and the cable works just fine. No issues there.

i dont see how this is going to work. the phone requires several pins pulled down to a lower voltage via a couple resistors to tell the phone its ok to pull power from usb. the 3g does at least. the 2g charges off a couple firewire pins i believe. or thats the way i understood how it works at least. it doesnt work off straight 5v usb and ground. how are they going to fit all that in to a mini usb?

Now why do I need this one so much? Its not a matter to be taken care off.cause I already have one and its fine for me don't need the new one.

Its not going to happen, no way

Well , I would love to see it , but it would make sense to use a adapter for the older models and upgrade next years model to include the port along with their ipod port and then go to just micro usb after that . But who is to say that their wont be some new hook-up come along by then that could be the standard .

I think the main reason they wont do this, is that every iPod/iPhone docking station would be useless with the newer generation devices.

To charge an iPhone 3G / iPod Touch 2nd gen, usb data- (25) should be at 2.8v, usb data+(27) should be at 2.0v. This can be done with a few simple resistors: 33k to +5v (23) and 22k to gnd(16) to obtain 2v and 33k to +5v and 47k to gnd to obtain 2.8v. This is a "notification" to the iphone that it is connected to the external charger and may drain amps from the usb.

If anyone know more on this topic I would really like to know.
But anyways if the resistors are inside the phone then they could still run the 2 connectors parallel and have a diode that would cancel or disable one connector if the other is already hooked up.iPhone 3g 8GB; iPhone 3GS 32GB

go to your local walmart, purchase an iphone charger, and open the connector. they dont make it the size they do because they want to. theres a few resistors and a pcb stuffed in there.

i have opened the connectors and matched them up with what the pinout page is referring to. it is accurate. this was on a 12v car car charger. and lol at using a resistor to drop 120v to 5v. that resistor wouldnt stand a chance.
