Iphone catches fire

Written by Nick Farell

Yet another problem


There are
more problems for Apple's latest 3G iPhone after reports have started to come in on them catching fire.

The most public report appeared here where the smoking and dead iPhone was displayed Che Guevara style for the amusement of the local press. It appears the fire started when the phone was recharging, which is probably a battery problem and could happen to any device.

However, Apple needs this like a hole in the head. The iPhone is already becoming buggy and has poor reception problems because Apple installed an immature chipset under the bonnet of the beast.  The fact that it did this, even though it was known that this particular chipset had been causing problems for early adopters in Europe for four years, is strange.

Yesterday, a software update to fix the reception problems actually makes things worse and buggers up the GPS system that comes with the phone. Apple is keeping quiet about all these problems and some observers are starting to wonder if it will face a product recall.
