Remember that guy who claimed he was injured when his Motorola Droid 2 exploded in his ear? Well, a source within Motorola believes that the man’s claims are false. Big surprise. This source believes that the phone was dropped and that the guy likely didn’t notice that the glass had cracked, cutting himself when he put his ear to it.
Sounds reasonable to me. The images of the device didn’t give any indication that an explosion had occurred, and the phone still worked so this scenario makes sense. There was also no explosive damage apparent on the device, with nothing blown outward.
