Both the Motorola Droid Bionic and Motorola Atrix 4G are poised to launch sometime between February and May, but word is trickling out that a pretty major bug has been detected in the power management unit used in the handsets that causes “severe” overheating, which creates a negative impact on call reception, phone booting, and wrecks battery life.

One source reporting on the bug, a trusted insider and contributor to HowardForums, said that the flaw was unfixable by simple means, and that it could be present in some launch devices. That is if the launch isn’t forced back by some indefinite amount of time while a stable power management system can be assembled and new hardware manufactured.

Keep in mind Motorola has not offered any comment on the matter, so it could be a very limited problem or no problem at all. We’ll stay skeptical for now, if only because we don’t want to wait any longer to get our hands on these awesome devices.
