Why are the new bb's including the storm, niagara and bold using a proprietary connection when for years they always used mini usb?
Reason I ask is the industry was supposedly going to mini/micro usb for chargers and the newer bb's are different.
I have 6 q9m/ bb chargers because of all the replacements etc. over the years so I have chargers in each car, at my house, work, parents house, their shore house, etc.
Other than money for the carriers/ manufacturer's is there any reason for this?
I am here to chew bubblegum and kick (butt) and I am all out of bubblegum!
Its not a propietary connection, its a micro USB connection. Actually, more and more devices are coming out with this connection. Get yourself a mini to micro adapter and you can continue to use your existing chargers.
