USB Connector-Mobile Phones

USB is a standard for a wired connection between two electronic devices, including a mobile phone and a desktop computer. The connection is made by a cable that has a connector at either end. One end, the one that plugs into the computer, is the same across all USB cables while the one that plugs into the mobile device can be of various types such as miniUSB, microUSB or a proprietary connector. USB version 1.1 provides maximum speeds of up to 1.5 MB/s while version 2.0 is about 40 times faster.
