Today the CTIA wireless trade association indicated that it has backed an initiative to make 3.5mm headset jacks the standard audio input/output jack for mobile phones. Many mobile phones continue to ship with 2.5mm headset jacks. The CTIA also supports making microUSB the standard data input/output port for mobile devices.

The goal is to have both 3.5mm headset jacks and microUSB ports standard features on all phones by January 2012.
