Motorola's RAZR2 V8 uses micro-usb. Not sure if the charger is OTG
though. I would guess that Motorola will go with micro-usb on future
devices as well (just as they had tons of mini-usb devices with their
own charger "hack"), but given their current state of affairs who knows
how much longer they'll be selling phones. ;-)
