DoCoMo halts BlackBerry Bold sales owing to overheating
The smiles are gone this week
NTT DoCoMo Inc, Japan’s biggest mobile phone operator, said on Friday it has halted sales of Research In Motion’s BlackBerry Bold because the phone can overheat while the battery is being recharged.
The company said it has received no reports of users getting burned or of phones catching on fire.
“This issue appears to be specifically limited to the BlackBerry Bold devices sold in Japan since last week and sales of BlackBerry Bold devices in other countries are unaffected by this matter.”
RIM said it had ruled out a battery problem, but said the root cause is still being investigated.
The latest I’ve seen says they’re overheating at the keyboard. WTF?
