Exploding Cell Phones

By Deane Barker on October 10, 2003

Pop Goes the Cell Phone: Between this and the electrifying Wi-Fi patch, gadgets are getting dangerous.

“Nokia on Thursday pointed the finger at counterfeit batteries after another of its phones exploded and burned its user, the third such case in two months, and said that original batteries sold with its phones were safe.”

Kyocera is apparently having the same problem.

“Kyocera Wireless has stopped shipping one of its Phantom models of cell phones after an Omaha, Neb., family reported the phone blew up, a company representative said Thursday.”
