Imagine, if you will, walking down the road talking on your Droid 2 when all of a sudden you hear a loud pop in your ear and the next thing you know your ear is bleeding. Not a nice thought by any means but that's exactly what happened to Aron Embry from North Texas. As noted in the news report Aaron, was taken to the hospital for assessment where doctors determined that no hearing loss had taken place but four stiches were indeed needed due to the lacerations from the glass. Motorola has since issued a statement regarding the incident:
"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."
Now, despite Aaron having had this happen while using a Droid 2 we'd be remiss if we didn't mention that instances like this have actually become more occasional; it's not just with the Droid 2. Please, no comments about explosive Android sales folks, that's just bad. You may like to know though, the phone actually still works. You can check out the full video of the news report at the source link. Thanks SooperDooper! [WFAA]
