Nokia sued over exploding phone

A Thai man worked near a high-voltage power pole when his phone rang. The handset, tugged in his shirt then exploded, causing serious injuries to the welder leading to the ambutation of his left foot.

Nokia denies any wrong-doing, naturally. But this is not the first time that this is happening. "The Finnish mobile phone giant has been plagued by a string of reports of exploding handsets but is adamant that each of the cases was down to counterfeit batteries" - and "placed holographic sticker to its mobile phone batteries to prevent fake power packs being inadvertently purchased as the real thing."

Who is to blame?
