Apple iPhone micro USB adapter

Apple has also quietly released a micro USB adapter, allowing you to charge the iPhone with any existing micro USB chargers.

This is to comply with the European norms, I suppose.

RE: Apple iPhone micro USB adapter

That's awfully good of them to do this rather than just fit a micro USB socket on the darn phone.  I have pre-ordered a 4S but at £8, they're taking the mick!  Nearly as ridiculous as what I had to pay for an ethernet adaptor.  What is it with apple and their accessories?

It's almost like they built up an enormous Eco system around the dock connector and they don't want people using mini USB Blum 3

I'm sure by the end of Steves 4 year plan there will be no holes/jacks/sockets on the iPhone whatsoever.

8 quid, and then they want a whapping 4 quid, PLUS VAT to ship this tiny item. I'm a big Apple fan, but that's really got my blood boiling! |( As rip-off's go, that's a whopper, and one you might not expect from a company already richer than the US government. Big black mark for Apple |(
