This idea sounds a good one, but as Rui said, the main problem is a lack 
of space. The USB female connector is 4 to 6 times bigger than a MiniUSB 
one ... And when you work on a phone, you can put a lot of things in 
such place.

But It's not a bad idea to add a miniUSB/USB adapter in the box (why not 
a 'U' adapter that let the USB device behind the phone (parallel)...

I repeat : sounds good.
