One of the hottest Android stories last week was that Cedar Hill Texas resident , Aaron Emby injured his ear when his Droid 2 “blew up” well Motorola has investigated the incident and confirmed to PC Magazine that the phone had been dropped, the screen cracked and allegedly when embry put it to his ear the broken phone cut his ear.
Motorola told PC Magazine:
[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).
There was no word on what the loud pop Mr. Embry heard was, or even if he had heard it at all.
