Samsung Omnia Battery Overheating

I've come upon the first quirk in my love affair with my Omnia: battery overheating. I've first experienced this during the first week that I've had the Omnia but I thought that it was just because I left the device on for a while and I haven't had the same experience again...well, until a while ago. When I took out my Omnia from my bag, it felt unusually hot, I quickly checked it to see if I left it on again but to my surprise, it wasn't. By "on" I mean, I left the backlight on somehow, however that wasn't the case.

I'm tempted to go to the Samsung Store tomorrow and ask what's wrong but I'll do a bit of Googling first and see if a lot of people are experiencing the same problems.

I was told by a guy in the carphone warehouse in bristol, uk that they've sold about 50-60 omnias and approx 40 have come back with this problem so they have taken them off the shelf for the moment.

Really? Wow, thanks for the feedback. I guess I'm going to have to ask Samsung for a replacement.

I took delivery of my Omnia about 3 days ago, it's on its third charge and I've just had to take it out of my pocket because it is burning my leg. Looks like I need to give Vodafone a call.
