iPad 2 mini USB charging
More and more insiders are saying that the next iPad will have USB. More than likly micro-USB. While thinner form, camera/video conferencing, and 3-axis gyroscopes are almost certainties, most Apple followers doubted the departure from the proprietary iPod charger connection. However, the European requirement that all mobile devices must use a single charging standard is apparently deciding things for Apple. If that is the case, then expect the next generations of iPhones to use micro-USB also.

I am taking this rumor about as seriously as the 7" rumor.
There is a lot of information that gets leaked from the factories that are involved in the construction of the devices. Also do not forget that Apple was one of the signatories to the original proposal to adopt the micro-USB as the standard. To me, it is just a guessing game to try and figure out what will happen. I favor the micro-USB port addition, but question if that will be adequate for all functions. It would not be the first time that pple has abandoned a proprietary format because the world decided not to go along. If Jobs decided it would be better for Apple, they will drop the iPod connector.
On a side note, with the move by the Chinese and Europe to adopt the standard, most feel that America will make it unanimous. Some manufacturers are making wall socket kits to plug a USB to micro USB charging cable directy into the wall socket. Some hotels are already installing them. Homeowners will be allowed to convert existing sockets or add them to their homes.
AND, even what he knows today is subject to change!
