The cell phone companies in Tokyo have planned to standardize the cell phone battery chargers and sockets so that any cell phone whether it is of NTT DoCoMo Inc, KDDI Corp or Vodaphone KK makes use of a single battery charger.
Ministry officials said:
The industry bodies of cell phone service providers and makers have informed the industry ministry of plans to unify specifications of cell phone sockets and battery charger plugs around 2010, when the use of fourth-generation phones will likely become full-fledged.
It is really a good news for the customers as they could buy a charger anywhere without the risk of buying a wrong one. Sadly, we need to wait for the year 2010 to come.
