    I am not saying just a resistor, but i am sure there are several in each charger. Anyways I think we have hijacked this tread enough!


    Back on topic: I really hope this happens!

    what type of resistor can be used to drop 120v to 5v? that is a serious question. my experience with resistors is dropping voltage on led set ups and the like. small voltage amounts. i have always seen some sort of regulator used when large voltage drops are needed.

    I think this'll be great if it hits into the US. Having so many different types of chargers for different types of phones (even sometimes it's the same phone brand but they have different chargers!!)- it's inane! maybe it's because I'm Asian, but I love when everything unifies..

    I am not Asian and I would like everything uniform... But I am in the military so that may play a big part. I would just settle for everything being able to charge wireless like the palm pre with its touchstone except really some kind of organizer that i can put any device in for charging purposes.

    Doubtful, but an interesting idea.

    Apple doesn't play well with others

    Is this such a big deal?

    I mean the idea is nice but all I care about halfway through day or come bed time is plug, sync, charge.

    All these posts over the sync cable? C'mon...

    Waste yer time over somin else, for this string of theads posts I suggest another time waster into the unknown... lets say...mmm, the camera shutter 'I MAY? have heard to cover the lens'?

    Lets see what the masses think! LOL

    Is this going to be like the Nextels and the Razors? Where the same charger will not charge both phones? Maybe it wasn't Nextel but I do remember plugging my Razor charger in to something else and it wouldn't work.

    theres is absolutely no way they would do anything other than an adapter... imagine all the third party companies whoes gadget wouldnt work if they changed this port... I have a few lying around my house now that would be obsolete

    Finally the micro USB is coming. I have heard it from a long days that it will be available in Europe. Why is there a delay?
