Go 'head South Korea!

The three major South Korea cell phone carriers have agreed to standardize the peripherals on cell phones.

And it's about damn time these companies realize that standards just make sense.

The simplicity of one standard is why USB devices are so popular, and why Wi-Fi has been adopted so quickly.

There is not one Wi-Fi for Cablevision and other for Verizon.

The shit just works.

However most tech companies would rather divide the market so consumers are forced to buy hundreds of dollars of crap with each new cell phone or to stick with one brand for life.

Imagine the three major U.S. carriers, Nokia, Motorola and Samsung, all having interchangeable headsets, earphones and battery chargers.

The sweet unity of it all.
