Never have to remember your charger again

This could be great news for any occasional (or not so occasional) travellers… one type of mobile charger to suit them all. I read today via PC World that the GSM association have agreed that mobile phone chargers of the future will have a USB mini-type interface. This would mean that when you get a new phone you won’t need a new charger as well (good on a green note) and hopefully will mean a drop in the price of chargers too.

I also hope that this won’t only be a move that the mobile phone manufacturers take up but also one that is followed by the producers of other portable devices such as MP3 players and SatNavs (of course these products may actually just be one piece of equipment by this point in time).
