    158 or so. The OMAP 3430 is rated from 0-70 degrees Celsius. I found the spec sheet at one point.

    I've seen 164F while navigating for 3 hours with the phone in the dock in south Florida. No problems at all.

    164F. Wow, I got nervous when mine hit 145F, even after I saw the 158F to be the upper limit in the stats.

    Glad to know someone has pushed it further than that and NOT fry the phone.

    Makes me wonder what's going to happen this summer when the sun's beating down.

    Time will tell.

    I certainly wouldn't keep it at that temperature for a long time. It may not instantly fry it, but being at the far end of the manufacturer's recommended limit for a long period of time will definitely shorten the life of the phone. To what degree has yet to be seen as it is still too early to tell. Most people have only been significantly overclocking for a month and a half or two months (1GHz+).
