We got word this morning from a Motorola employee involved with Droid development that the phone may not have exploded at all. The Droid 2 in question "was a phone that got dropped," the employee told PCMag. "[T]he guy didn't notice the glass had cracked [...]so when he put it to his ear, he cut himself."
The 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).
Maybe he heard one of those pimples pop.. seriously what a stupid scam artist.
The only thing really dangerous in phones are the batteries and in the very unlikely event that explodes its on the opposite side of your face!
Everyone is looking for a way to make a quick buck. Again, this world we live in blows when it's so money-centric. This is depressing.
well android is exploding all over the place. That could be why. :)
I feel much safer with my WP7 Phone. Thanks Microsoft for keeping me safe! lol

"Droid 2 Dropped, Didn't Explode"
This title is very misleading lol
It sounds like it if you drop a Droid 2 it will exploded always..... and the fact that it was dropped and didn't explode is big news.
"Someone dropped a Droid 2 today... and it didn't explode! How is that possible? More on that after the break."
pretty sweet story to tell about ur injury- if ONLY he had used what was left of his brains to concoct something better...
LOL, yeah that's part of the reason why I clicked on this story.
