This was on the news last Wednesday night. They said that a man died (probably) because of his handphone’s battery that exploded in his shirt pocket. More than 80% of Koreans own handphones. Samsung, LG and Pantech are the three biggest handphone brands in Korea, while Nokia is not a known brand here. Hmm… I don’t know anyone who owns a Nokia here. Here’s the video clip of the phone and the shirt that the man was wearing at the time of his death. Here’s also a news report in English.
