Universal Charger from all Mobile Phones

Finally we are all going to be able to share our mobile charger regardless of the brands that we are using thanks to the Open Mobile Terminal Platform (OMTP), a forum of leading phone operators and manufacturers including heavyweights Nokia, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and LG, who has agreed to make micro-USB the connector standard on all its future hardware.

Micro-USB ports allow devices to be charged from PCs. They're also smaller than current mini-USB connectors, making them better suited to the smaller form factors of modern personal devices.

Its a good development for mobile phone users. Hunting down a charger will surely be a thing of the past. Universal charger will also be an advantage to the environment as it will allow mobile users to recycle future chargers than having it disposed.

Dont be too happy yet with this announcement. While the news maybe out and the agreement has been reached but the actual execution of this agreement will still take some time.
