    I've been hoping to get a longer usb cord like the ones that come with the Galaxy series. Guess the cost have to be cut somewhere lol.

    Technically short usb cords are better in data transfer ,charging ,but yes the usability is important too,they should have kept it standard like other bb devices .

    I've gotten cords that short with BlackBerrys before. My Z30 came with an approx 3 foot long cord though.... what type of earphones did u get? The premium ones?

    Hey Playbookster . . Have you been sharing your z30 experiences somewhere? I was following your "look what came today" thread and haven't seen much . . Not saying you owe us updates, just not wanting to miss out if you've been posting them elsewhere.

    Sincerely,
    Some random guy on vzw in usa living vicariously through others until z30 comes here . . .

    I'd recommend cutting Thorsten's annual payout by 75% as a starting point for these cost-cutting measures. Frank can just be fired with a swift kick to the posterior on the way out the door.

    I have lots of long usb cables so for me it was neat to get a short one to add to my collection in case I have a need to keep cable clutter down some day.

    Funny thing is, for a normal micro usb it's like 20-30 bucks..

    Some of these guys are crooks
