    Does anyone think WP8 will get USB 3.0? Will anyone want the tradeoff of a different cable (that two plug looking insert, like the Galaxy Note 3 ) for faster speeds
    and possibly faster charge times?

    You mean the ugly-looking microUSB 3.0? Yes, of course.

    Now that USB is set to become reversible, eliminating the need for USB OTG, all Microsoft has to do is to bake the drivers into the OS.

    I just looked at MicroUSB 3.0. Doesn't seem to keep the "micro" in its name... Lol

    USB 3.0 should have been on phones years ago, it's crazy how the damn OEMs (even Nokia) are dragging their feet on this. If they are going to upgrade the USB now they should go with USB 3.1 and not the now old USB 3.0 standard.

    That's all they have to do to support USB OTG. In fact, the drivers are already built. All MSM 8960 and Snapdragon 800 SoCs have USB OTG. Same with Bluetooth 4.0 LE.
