  1. It’s intersting that while it would be excellent for consumers to standardize batteries (and power adapters), the manufacturers will never do so for the reasons cited (mostly, they make lots of money and consumers don’t value it enough to actually shop for it).

  2. Yup… its the same thing in the printer cartridges. you can get cheaper clones but somehow don’t bother. hate being lazy. i guess its one of those things … ah

  3. I’ve had nothing but good experience with SonyEricsson parts. With my R520m batteries were working for up to a week when I bought the phone, and at least 3-4 das after 2,5 years (when I replaced it with a P900 which has had constant performance for the last ~8 months).
    Ericsson and later SonyEricsson were also excellent when it came to add-ons: their “interface” on the bottom of the phones didn’t change for many many years, so you could use headphones, radio-addons, chargers etc. across (almost) all different phone models.

    However I do agree that standardization will be good for the market. It seems like 2-3 years ago would have been perfect for that, since most phones looked a like anyway. I wonder if consumers will base their buying decisions on such incentives (or wether it’s one of the things where everyone says: “Yes, it’s important”, but then goes on to buy something that doesn’t have that feature).
