Today the GSMA and a group of 17 mobile operators and handset manufacturers announced plans to introduce a standard for a universal charger for mobile phones. The goal is to force the mobile industry to adopt a common format for mobile phone chargers. The GSMA hopes this initiative will lead to less electricity consumption, as well as reducing the need to provide a new charger with each new phone. It also believes it will lead to less confusion for consumers. Some of the companies supporting the initiative include AT&T, Motorola, Qualcomm, Samsung, and T-Mobile.
