2 years ago when the team shipped our first notebook computer, one of the aspects that we saw huge opportunity for improvement in our product as well as in the whole consumer electronics industry was the charging port... We are where cell phones were in the mid 2000s, with every vendor shipping a unique and incompatible connector, port, and adapter. Tons of unnecessary e-waste, and a significant inconvenience when you switch devices.
Cell phones and other small devices settled on a common standard : USB Micro-b several years ago. However, no such standard existed for laptop computers.
Our team, many of whom appear in this video, worked closely with the USB body to create the new power and data connector and plug standard for the future.
The Type C connector not only replaces proprietary power adapters with one that will work with other vendors' devices (as of now, Google, Apple, and Nokia have announced devices that charge via Type C), it also provides usb data, up to 10gbps, and display out as well, opening up exciting new possibilities of single-cable docking devices.
This is not a Google standard, nor an Apple standard port, but a truly common port that we will hopefully see in everyone's systems very soon.
Very proud of our team for the work they've done here, and for the collaboration with the industry at large. Even among competitors, it's nice to find common ground on tech like this.
