More Nokias explode, start of an epidemic?

Two more phones have exploded, and they are both from Nokia. The last time a phone exploded it was a Kyocera, and the company took drastic action (halted shipment of the model worldwide until the exact cause can be tracked down). Nokia has yet to do more than blame the explosions on after market batteries (they often cost 10% of what Nokia charges). Obviously, if you have a Nokia and need a new battery, spend the cash and get something from Nokia. The worst case is that you'll have a hell of a case against Nokia.
