I think you are right that it should not be a "slave only" jack,
considering that the device can also be a master.

With some difficulty I managed to find a mini-AB to mini-B cable for
my Zaurus (and now they decided it's obsolete, great!), but I don't
think I've yet seen a micro-AB device or cable.  So hopefully the
phone would ship with the useful cables (one to go to a PC and one
with a mini-B plug to go to peripherals).
