iPhones selling like, err, hot iPhones

Cupertino (CA) – Apple’s iPhone 3GS is hot stuff, but for all the wrong reasons, suggest reports.

One French site claims that the iconic phones are getting so hot that they change color from cool white to singed brown. Other sites claim that the phone becomes too hot to use although the black handsets at least have the benefit that at least they get none more black, despite getting hot enough to burn users’ ears.

The faults seems to be caused by using the GPS features, suggests Wired, adding that we might be headed for yet another exploding battery scandal. Older 2G iPod touches upgraded to the latest hot software also seem to be becoming rather too hot to handle and battery life is seriously compromised.

Apple, as usual, is playing it cool and refusing to admit there are any problems.
