Is Apple Repsonsible for Exploding iPhones?

On August 30, 2009

 I read over a pcworld that apple sys the exploding iPhones over in Europe isn’t their problem.  Apple (according to the article) says that the exploding glass from the iPhone in all incidents is caused by user  error.


While it may be true that exploding devices may not be due a problem with Apple’s design;  it seems odd to me (personally) that they are trying to shift the blame before the investigation ends.

Are my suspicions warranted?
