MicroUSB ports with support for the USB 3.0 spec will be added to smartphones and tablets by the end of 2012, said Rahman Ismail, chief technology officer of the USB Implementers Forum. Speaking at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Rahman said USB 3.0 will allow for faster charging and faster data transfer to mobile devices, though it won't support the same high speeds available to laptops with USB 3.0. Rahman estimated data speeds will be about 100Mbps second on mobile devices. Smartphones and tablets equipped with microUSB 3.0 ports will be backward compatible with previous USB versions. No smartphone or tablet manufacturers have yet committed to adding USB 3.0 to their devices.
