Motorola Droid Bionic and Atrix 4G could suffer from fatal power problems

Now this piece of news could certainly send shares of Motorola south – assuming it is correct, of course. We’re talking about select units of the Droid Bionic and Atrix 4G suffering from a power management fault which cannot be fixed – and that would surely lead to the smartphones overheating even if they’re idle, which isn’t good news at all.
