Droid Phone Explodes, Injures Man: Report

A man in Texas is claiming his Motorola Droid 2 phone exploded in his ear on Friday. And you thought brain tumors were the biggest worry. “I heard a pop,” says Aron Embry. “I didn't feel any pain initially. I pulled the phone down. I felt something dripping. I realized that it probably was blood. I went into the house and as I got into the bathroom and once I got to the mirror and saw it, it was only then I kinda looked at my phone and noticed the screen had appeared to burst outward." He’s getting stitches, and didn’t suffer any injuries to his hearing. A mobile-phone expert tells Fox, meanwhile, that it sounds like the accident was user-caused.
