CTIA Wants 3.5 mm; You Probably Do, Too!
Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 01:00 AM
"An international trade group representing wireless device makers has announced it was backing a drive to standardize audio and USB plugs for laptops and other mobile gadgets. CTIA Wireless Association said it is behind an initiative to make 3.5mm plugs the standard for earphones, headphones and micro-USB connections in mobile devices introduced to the market after January 2012."
Assuming manufacturers get behind this initiative, perhaps, finally, we can wave goodbye to the loathed ExtUSB and 2.5 mm, and welcome 3.5 mm with open arms.
