This is actually a really good idea, should've been done before, but at least it will get done. 2012... 3 years from now... I'm hoping technology will develop enough to charge all cell phones wirelessly by then. Also, what will the standard be??? Mini-usb? I'm guessing micro-usb... Phones will get thinner and it will be a matter of time before some get too small for mini-usb.

I thought this had already happened to a degree. I thought I read somewhere that manufacturers like LG, Samsung, Motorola had all agreed that micro-USB would be the charging standard? IDK...Good idea nonetheless.

Yeah I read on CNET that it was micro USB. And they also mentioned that Apple is not part of the agreement. So this is probably a no-go for the iPhone.

Thank goodness this is happening. My only regret is that it hasn't been discussed and put into practice sooner! I'm reminded of an old Simpsons dialogue exchange between Moe and Homer as Moe is upgrading his hole-in-the-wall bar to a family style restaurant and installing an industrial sized deep fryer, which he bought from the U.S. Navy... Moe: Yeah, I got this fryer from the U.S. Navy. It can fry a buffalo in about 40 seconds! Homer: 40 seconds?! ::homer groans in frustration:: AWWWW but I want it now!
