iPhone 3GS vs. the World

First iPhone 3GS nit: refuses to charge when connected to the USB 2.0 port of the Bella USA Final Cut Keyboard:

Can’t wait to see if it balks at connecting to the “Built for iPod / Works with iPhone” car radio I bought four months ago.

  1. Keyboard probably isn’t providing enough amperage.

    And unless it’s advertised as working with the iPhone 3G (or 2nd gen iPod touch), that car radio probably won’t work either. (Earlier iPods and the original iPhone could charge off 12v, the 3G and 3G S need 5v. Guess which is easier to provide at a reasonable amperage, and so which accessory vendors used?)
