Remember the story last week of Aron Embry. This was the dude who claimed to have his Motorola Droid 2 explode on his ear. He stated that “Once I got to the mirror and saw it, it was only then I kind of looked at my phone and realized that the screen had appeared to burst outward.”
Well it now seems that Motorola has looked into the case and gave a statement to PC Magazine. Apparently it was a misunderstanding of Embry as the Droid 2 didn’t explode but was dropped and the screen cracked, then he placed the phone on his ear and out came the blood.
“[The Droid 2] was a phone that got dropped. [T]he guy didn’t notice the glass had cracked […]so when he put it to his ear, he cut himself.” [T]he only things that could explode in a phone would have resulted in a phone that did not work, yet this phone worked. And there was no explosive damage to the device (things inside blown outward, etc).”
Big difference from bursting outward and accidentally dropping your device. Good story though.
