In cell phone news, a man's Nokia 2115i apparently exploded an hour and a half after he connected it to it's AC charger at home. Now I'm no pyrotechnician or anything, I'm just a guy who loves fireworks, but based on the movement of the phone from its original position, the damage it took from the blast, and the smoke and soot on the floor, I'm going to throw out my own little theory here. That theory is that someone was trying to kill this man. Probably a disgruntled ex-girlfriend or wife. If it did in fact explode on its own, then wow. And if so, I just ordered one off of ebay for my (soon to be ex) wife. You didn't read this. I didn't just say that. These aren't the droids you're looking for. Oh, nuts.
Several more pictures of the damage after the jump.
