Unfortunately commercial considerations mean that any phone which does not 
support micro USB charging, without some extra dongle to carry around, will 
suffer in the marketplace.  The MoU is a way to get around anti-trust issues 
and allow the manufacturers to offer what the users want: everything charging 
from the same charger.

If micro USB charging really does conflict with host mode then we won't see 
host mode on any device: it is as simple as that.  Does anyone else have any 
info on whether host mode can be supported along with microUSB charging?
