We've always known that HTC's DROID Incredible was a hot device, but this news takes it to the extreme. An Android Central forum member named tyler0630 had his Incredible catch fire and live to tell the tale. The story goes that Tyler had the device safe in his pocket, but somehow the Incredible managed to slip out and fall right into a beach bonfire without anyone noticing. When the fire started ringing, Tyler knew something was up. After the phone was plucked from the fire and allowed to cool down, it booted right up as if it hadn't just faced certain death. That's one incredible story.
While cell phone destruction stories come through all of the time, this one is pretty unique since the phone survived the ordeal. It looks like Tyler just needs a new back for his DROID Incredible and he'll be right as rain. This news makes me wonder how many other phones could go through the fire and flames and still function afterward, although it's not something I'd want to test. Do you have any interesting phone destruction stories?
