touch it with a piece of paper -- if it burns, temp is above 200°c, if not  
drop some water on it -- if it boils it's above 100°c.
if the temp is lower, you could pry the back cover open and let the  
battery drop out -- hopefully in one piece and not several drops :-).

seriously -- i think, removing the battery is the best way, but it would  
be great, if one of the hw guys could say something ...
i modified the subject to catch more attention.
