Galaxy s3 exploded

Just a couple of weeks away from its availability in the US, the hottest gadget Samsung Galaxy S3 exploded in a car while the motorist was driving in Dublin. Isn't it too scary? The guy just docked it in a car mount and didn't even plug in the charger. Here is the whole story from the owner,

"So I driving along today with my Galaxy S3 in my car mount when suddenly a white flame, sparks and a bang came out of the phone. I pulled in to look at my phone, the phone burned from the inside out. Burned through the plastic and melted my case to my phone. The phone kept working but without any signal.

I brought it to the carphone warehouse and they told me that they couldnt replace it for me that they had to send it off to be checked out first. No even replacement phone, left with nothing.

The phone was destroyed and it slightly burned a piece of plastic on the inside of my car. And they are refusing to give me a replacement they had to send it off. Probably nothing I can do, but Im really annoyed. That could have burned the side of my face or through my pocket and my leg, or set fire to my bed. It's very dangerous."

Not sure what impact it is going to leave on potential buyers and of course it is going to be available in US in a few weeks, which is known to be biggest market for smart phones. We also have an update from Samsung on their blog,

"There have been recent online posts displaying pictures of a Samsung GALAXY SIII that appears to have heat-related damage at the bottom of the device. Samsung is aware of this issue and will begin investigating as soon as we receive the specific product in question.

Once the investigation is complete, we will be able to provide further details on the situation. We are committed to providing our customers with the safest products possible and are looking at this seriously."

So, let's wait and watch what Samsung turns up with their response after looking into the device. But that poor fellow is left with no replacement phone and not sure how long it is going to take.
