Droid 2 Allegedly Explodes in Man's Ear
Aron is currently without health insurance, and is hoping that Motorola will help cover the costs of his emergency room visit. The company said it's currently investigating the claim. The fact that most cell phone explosions involve the battery, and that this one doesn't seem to, makes us slightly skeptical. For its part, the Dallas Fox affiliate that originally reported the case seems downright dismissive. Then again, their doubt is based on the word of a "tech expert" (read: a cell phone repairman), who claims he's never heard of an exploding cell phone. Clearly he needs to read Switched more often. Check out the video after the break.
