Samsung To Temporarily Halt Galaxy Note 7 Production

Citing the always reliable "person with direct knowledge of the matter," Bloomberg says that Samsung has temporarily halted production of the Galaxy Note 7 until it can figure out the whole exploding thingy. Not sure why they didn't do this from the start but, better late than never I guess.

Samsung temporarily suspended production of its most expensive phone, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said Monday, asking not to be identified because the decision isn’t public. The move came as wireless carriers including AT&T Inc., T-Mobile US Inc., Verizon Communications Inc. and Australia’s Telstra Corp. stopped selling Note 7s following reports of problems with devices thought to be safe.
