Motorola DROID 2 exploded and injured a man

Aron Embry , a man from North Texas was just finishing a call on his brand new Motorola DROID 2 when the phone exploded leaving the man injured and bleeding. He said he heard a loud “pop” and then noticed that he started bleedin. He received four stitches, and was told that he wouldn't have any hearing problems.

“Once I got to the mirror and saw it, it was only then I kind of looked at my phone and realized that the screen had appeared to burst outward," he said. The handset, however, remained functional and with only a shattered glass near the speaker.



This was enough for Motorola to release an official statement :
“Motorola’s priority is, and always has been the safety of our customers, and all Motorola products are designed, manufactured and tested to meet or exceed international and local standards for consumer safety. We will reach out to the consumer and investigate this thoroughly.”

Exploding phones are a rare occasion, but they do happen, and some of them have been fatal.

Specifications of Motorola Droid 2 can be found here.
You guys think that man should receive compensation from Motorola and Verizon ?

Nothing to do with the screwed up laws of tort in the great state of Texas? With the right jury, he could end up owning the company.
