I think most consumers will read this and go meh.
They will utterly despair at 2 things
- It's not backward compatible, which is stupid dumbass territory. people's irritation at Apple over the 30 pin to Lightening connector is still passionately rumbling on
- The previous consensus of a large number of device manufacturers to try and focus connectors on the single Micro USB Blackberry/Kindle type connector has just been chucked in the bin.
About time! I can't count the number of times I've remarked that the designer of the USB connector should be drawn and quartered.
