This bit of content falls squarely within the runor category and should be regarded as such. According to a long time member of Howard Forums (six years, 6,000 posts), two of the–if not the two–hottest gadgets announced at CES, the Motorola Atrix 4G and DROID Bionic, could see a delay in shipments thanks to significant power management problems.
The problem has to do with the PMU and causes a variety of issues including severe overheating even while at idle, power fluctuations affecting RF performance and cold boot issues.
These things were told to me by someone who is testing the devices. I have no hands on experience myself.
If you want to believe me that’s fine…if not…that’s fine too.
I have no intention of disclosing or discussing anything about my sources.
Satisfying people’s curiosity on internet forums is utterly worthless compared to their trust and my continued ability to have access to them.
If the reasons why aren’t plainly obvious to you then I needn’t bother explaining…sorry.
Atrix has consumer’s wallets at the ready with its modular connectivity system, and Bionic is as exciting an Android powerhouse as we’re likely to see for the next six months. Let’s hope Motorola can get any potential kinks worked out before release dates start getting pushed back.
[UPDATE] Motorola reached out to Droid-Life today to say that the issue reported is non-existent and that the devices will ship as scheduled. [END UPDATE]
