Apparently, even the CEO's of our cellular carriers go through the same pain we consumers do regarding cell phone chargers. Dan Hesse, Sprint's CEO, recently described the problem of multiple different types of charging plugs from phone to phone as "a pet peeve of mine for a very long time". He expects a standardized microUSB charging plug to become the norm by January of 2012. This way all new US phones will be able to use the same plug to charge their battery with. That would be very nice indeed. Let's 'knock on wood' that it actually happens.
