It seems that French consumer affairs minister has met with an Apple exec to discuss the latest iphone “explosion” problems in France and other parts of the world.
iPhone exploding, is that possible?
Yes, the battery of the iPhone has been reported to “explode” at random occasions ever since its birth. Apple is claiming that their iPhones do not explode but history says otherwise. Apple Nanos in South Korea have been recalled in the past due to “faulty” batteries, possibly the ones that explode.
The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards said in a statement that it requested on June 25 that Apple Korea should recall 1st generation iPod nanos following a series of complaints about batteries overheating or exploding.
It’s probably not a big percentage of iPhones that explode and may only affect the ones with battery defects but still, it makes me wonder if it’s safe to get an iPhone anymore.
I will have to stick with Palm Pre for now, which is better at multi-tasking and I can hack it to do more stuff on its native linux system. Plus, I hate to worry about anything “exploding”. If Apple denies that world-wide reports are false, they are bunch of liars and I don’t need to be part of that.
