South Korea to standardize ports

Dec 14 2005 - 02:18 PM ET | Accessories

In another sign that the Korean mobile phone industry is just showing off (as if satellite TV wasn't enough), the three major operators have decided to standardize sync and charge ports for every phone. That means one phone's charger will work with any other and should give accessories a longer life.

There's no time frame for when the cutover will happen, or specifics on the actual technology, but it's a step in the right direction.
