Dont know the reasons behind the selection but I for one like USB A on the nano, I find it very flexible accommodating old and new kit. Maybe that’s the reason - for maximum backwards comparability.

The Nano is very slim down version of the Mark V and also an updated version.  Im pretty sure the USB A female is more about compatibility than newer hardware.  It is a lot easier to plug your phone into with the supplied power cable for you phone or tablet also easier to plug in a usb wifi dongle for a 3rd radio.  Its about versatility and compatibility with all your devices. ( usb wifi dongle, usb sim modem, your phone/tablet or even a usb flash drive mounted as sd).    Nobody likes to carry extra extra cables to make everyday items work.

Because it would be daft to ask the user to use a micro USB to USB adapter if they want to use a USB radio.
