Those little chargers are a big deal for me. In my household, we charge all of our personal and business devices at home -- and it's created quite the spaghetti factory and filled up an impressive -- but ugly --collection of powerstrips. Being able to ditch all that for a couple of universal chargers would be a huge improvement.
Of course, we're still a long way away from a universally respected standard, as many manufacturers are likely to try to protect the high margins they get on their proprietary chargers, just as they tried -- and ultimately failed -- to protect proprietary headset connections.
But user demand for interoperable devices should help make this a reality -- especially if consumers and businesses large and small demand that new phones employ the new standard.
I know I will!
