Too Hot to Handle

It's the burning topic of the day in Japan: Do you have an N504iS i-mode camera phone from NTT DoCoMo Inc. (NYSE: DCM)? If so, warns DoCoMo, you may find it can double up as a personal body warmer (see DoCoMo Warns on Handsets).

Only "in very rare cases," says the DoCoMo statement, do the handsets, made by NEC Electronics Corp., warm up a tad too much because of a "hardware conflict." If users find the phone getting noticeably hot, then a trip to the local DoCoMo shop is in order.

So those folk currently sporting an N504iS may want to think carefully about where on their person they carry the handset. That burning sensation need not be grounds for divorce.
