I have had 2 phones (old feature phones) blow up when I left them in my office plugged in...

They also happened to be sitting on my old desk (in my old apartment) which is under a rather large window where the sun rises slightly to my left but still right onto my desk... (had a shrowd on my LCD at the time, just didnt think my LG work feature phone would die from the sun so fast)....

Anyway. Good stuff, ASUS to the rescue

If it was an iPad the comments would be like.



"Apple is trying to get people to buy the new iPad 4"

And a whole bunch of other ignorant things.

As tragic as this may be to the owner and the rest of us Android fanatics, at least this does little to nothing in regards to ruining Google's and Android's good name. This falls into the lap of the manufacturer and their hardware suppliers.

Even if this was true, this is only 1 in the multi-millions of N7's sold. To put this in context you probably have a better chance of winning the lottery than getting a melting N7.

Showed this news a month ago at the "Nexus 7 already the best selling tablet ever in the UK" news comment. Why took so long?

this is the consumer's fault acually!

"The owner of the tablet says that the slate was in his office overnight when the incident occurred"

so he forgot to unplug his tablet! its his fault! human error! not company's error!

Uh ohhhhhhh... This simply proves, that the nexus 7 like any device can have issues. The iPad, nexus, surface, galaxy tab, and the rest r prone to problems. It's still a great tablet though.
