Look what we have here, the Motorola Droid Bionic appearing while the camera is rolling. Instead of a Mr. Blurrycam picture we actually get a video today.

Our best late-night tipper buddy Joseph has done some sweet internets digging to bring us a few bonus specs on the upcoming dual-core LTE Android by the name of Droid Bionic. We've been waiting for this device since CES those billions of months ago, back when it was an entirely different person - now who is it? Some stranger to us! No worries though, we're still in love.

Droid Bionic Release now Mid-April [Says Verizon]

We were just hanging out like hooligans at a Verizon store today when we decided to inquire about a particular phone on the horizon: the Motorola Droid Bionic. This is a phone with 512MB of RAM, a dual-core processor [UPDATE: NVIDIA Tegra 2!], and wouldn't you know it - 4G LTE speed. As it turns out, the folks at Verizon were more than willing to hand us over a bit of info on this phone, most of it we already knew, but let slip a rather important point of interest: the release date.

Motorola DROID Bionic and ATRIX 4G suffering “unfixable” power problems? [Updated]

The Motorola DROID Bionic and ATRIX 4G allegedly both suffer from a power management fault that could lead to the smartphones overheating even when idle. According to trusted source kbman at HowardForums, his contacts involved in testing the smartphones claim the issues could affect radio performance among other things.
"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"
More concerning are suggestions that the problem is "unfixable", though another user claiming insider information claims the PMU problem is in fact due to be addressed this week. While no specific evidence has been produced, kbman has a track record of inside Motorola information that is leaving would-be Bionic buyers wary of the new smartphone. [via Electronista] Update: Motorola has been in touch to say "there are no overheating issues and the products will ship as scheduled."

Motorola Bionic Heading to Verizon, Packing 4G LTE and qHD Display

Motorola has been on a streak today with their Android devices, especially when we think about high-profile the company is aiming these devices to be. With the Motorola ATRIX 4G, the company touts it as the first smartphone to feature a qHD display. The Bionic, which will be launching on Verizon's network sooner than later, also features the high resolution display, but the obvious difference seems to be the lack of MOTOBLUR functionality between the devices.
