Submission + - USB 3.0 to reach smartphones, tablets by year end (cio.com.au)

swandives writes: "USB 3.0 ports are set to reach smartphones and tablets by the end of the year or early 2013, according to the USB standards setting organisation.

Smartphones and tablets will likely get a MicroUSB port based on USB 3.0 technology to fit the small size of the devices, said Rahman Ismail, chief technology officer of the USB Implementers Forum during the Consumer Electronics trade show in Las Vegas.

The ports will enable faster data transfer between mobile devices and host devices such as PCs, some of which already have USB 3.0 ports. The data transfer rates will likely be 100 megabytes per second, or roughly 800 megabits per second (Mbps). Mobile devices currently use the older USB 2.0 technology, which is slower."
