Sony Ericsson to drop M2/Memory Stick Micro

Is this the end of the M2/Memory Stick Micro card? News is SE is dropping the M2 memory card format. This should come as no surprise as more standards like MicroSD card and MicroUSB become wider standards in mobile phones and SE has already committed itself in the future to use MicroUSB for charging/USB cables in future products. I for one welcome this change and I am sure many others will enjoy this decision.
