USB Type-C hands-on: It's here and it's great



LAS VEGAS – At CES 2015, folks at USB Implementers Forum and Intel showcased a quick, yet impressive, demo of what USB 3.1 Type-C is capable of.

If you haven’t heard of USB Type-C, I laid out its details here. To quickly recap, apart from the fact that with Type-C there’s no need to worry about which side of the cable to plug in (it works either side up), it also packs the USB 3.1 standard, which comes with a top speed of 10Gbps, twice the current speed of USB 3.0.




Wish I had this in my tablet. The mini-usb plug is always incorrectly lined up, even when it isn’t.
