MicroUSB is the new standard for all phones from now on I believe, so if anything, you already have the most "universal" charging/data port. Apple is the black sheep in this case.
So as for accessories, most home/car chargers and data cables will work, but body styles are always going to be different, so docks and cases are what will have to be specific to your phone.
As for the placement of the port, its meant for horizontal docking.
