Samsung Galaxy S III Burns
Engadget reports a Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone burst into flames and melted while in an in-car holster. Samsung posted on its blog that it's aware of this issue and will begin investigating as soon as they receive the specific product in question.
The global HSPA+ iteration of Samsung's new flagship apparently sparked into white flames, followed by a bang. While it's certainly not the first smartphone to implode in transit, the damage -- along the base but separate to the charging port -- looks pretty substantial and although the screen still apparently worked, reception was dead. The phone has been whisked off to a repair center through phone retailer Carphone Warehouse for the full autopsy. User dillo2k10 was left unscathed, but it's apparently left some nasty molten plastic remains on the inside of his car.
