Whole Lotta Handset Hullabaloo

Two stories getting major play today across the trades and blogosphere:

1) Apparently DoCoMo has stopped sales of RIM's BlackBerry Bold in Japan, where 30 customers have complained about the keyboard overheating during the recharging process. Odd that this is only happening in Japan. Hopefully this won't derail RIM's nascent business in that market...where foreign handsets (including the iPhone) have had a hard time getting any market traction.

2) UK operators are reportedly freaking out about Nokia's plans to preload the Skype client in their highly anticipated N97 and future N-Series handsets. No one who reads this blog is surprised by this development, right? (Note the first bullet in my post from February 18th).
