Nokia X2 Takes a Bullet to Save Owner's Life

As countless internet memes will tell you, the Nokia 3310 is about as indestructible as they come. But what about the company's other phones? We don't know about the rest of them, but it looks like the Nokia X2 is also one sturdy phone. Earlier this morning, a Facebook user reported about an incident occurring in Syria, a country that has been experiencing internal political conflict since early 2011.

Apparently a Nokia X2 owner was using his phone to film a gunfight going on between the rebels and the military when a stray bullet struck the phone, preventing it from hitting the owner. According to the source, the owner was holding the device in his right hand, right in front of his face.
Unfortunately, there aren't more details surrounding the incident and we aren't ballistics experts or anything but the photo seems to indicate the bullet went straight through the front of the phone and out the back.

We may not have the entire story here, but a more likely truth could be that the phone was located in the owner's pocket and softened the blow of the bullet, rather than stopping it altogether. In any case, we'd probably suggest you stay away from any civil war conflict whether you have a Nokia phone or not.

    If it was a 3310 we'd see a phone-shaped hole in the bullet.

    In other News, dropping an iPhone whilst tying your shoe up shatters the backing and screen.

    how did it prevent it from hitting the owner? It has a hole straight through it. Looks more like someone took it out back and shot it, Wouldn't be surprised seeing as how it's a nokia phone.
