MobileBliss: A year-old Chinese cellphone explodes in Bangkok businessman's pocket
That's why we should take care of this little things and keep in mind while purchasing these electronics items. So that we don't threat our own lives due to this.
And boom goes the dynamite
"imagine how much trouble the mainstream manufacturers with reputations to maintain would be in if Sony’s PlayStation Phone or HTC’s Facebook phone exploded in a user’s pocket." Happens to iPhones all the time.
Happens to many smartphones, not just the iphone.
I think you missed my joke.
I love how they only use Sony and HTC as their example, just ignoring all the other phone manufacturers completely.
Well, it's just the typical bias of those two companies and how people love to hate on them.
It's not like any other examples of cell phone producers should spring directly to mind.....*COUGH*APPLE*COUGH*
I never buy stuff that are made in China. /sarcasm
yup there is a possibility that the battery caused it to explode if he is using non standard or cheap ones
"Sony’s PlayStation Phone or HTC’s Facebook" Seriously, WTF! how old is this post again because the PlayStation phone is now known as the XPERIA Play and I am not sure if HTC did manufacture any Facebook branded phone. on topic: how did he survive the explosion?
There was a facebook pone by htc here is the link http://www.htc.com/us/produ... But I think you have taken what he said the wrong way. He was giving examples of phones not picking on any of them for a reason.
I don't see how this is news though. You buy crap, at least don't hold too many hopes of it surviving.
