    Not sure what to make of this but here you have it. From a reliable Hofo source:

    If your really posting from a bionic I feel so sorry for you.that _mod edit_ is so far from usable in any way shape or form.I bet that if it even makes it to shelves it will be through a bribe.the Etna and its twin for att both have a major unfixable flaw that will plaque it forever.too bad as I like it's concept.its basically a ggalaxyS with motos XOOMs guts.almost exact!.I been using them as door stops since they are far from ready to be used daily.too bad I couldn't hand them out as hockey pucks.

    If it was given the proper dev time then I would feel differently.but knowing it'll be rushed makes it a pass and wait for the droid X refresh or the Droid3.good luck with that sig of yours.

    As discussed in the main Bionic thread, although this is supposedly a trusted source at howard forums, I for one am not buying it. He's saying the same thing about the Atrix and Jha's already said that's his "baby". No way MM is going to put out their first flagship device as a doorstop.

    Sounds like sour grapes from someone who may not have gotten taken by Mobility in the split.

    I don't know wingdo....he's pretty trusty and is a Moto insider. He has always spoke highly of Moto devices and this is a first. It's reason enough for me at least to have a wait and see approach. I'm now officially out on this one but will watch the release.

    I am also on the sidelines - mind you I was hyped up for the Bionic, but I am going to keep my horizon clear :)

    I have discussed this with the aforementioned source and its related to the PMU, which he says is too late in the process to be changed.

    Severe overheating even when sitting idle, power fluctuations and cold booting problems. All of them render the device unusable at this stage, so he says.

    Anyone who doesn't believe what he says about Motorola devices is sorely misguided.

    He is one of the only reliable sources posting anywhere on the web with real hands on experience with all of them.

    It's a shame about the Bionic - I (was) looking forward to it :(

    Damn, I wait months for an upgrade, finally make a decision, and now I am thrown into doubt. If the Bionic is really as bad as the source says, what are you guys thinking will be your next phone? I thought April was going to be a long wait -- ugh.

    One touched... LOL

    But, CK, why you gotta be all up and twinkling in my Cheerios again - that's twice in less than a week!! :)

    Maybe Moto should spend a little less time worrying about whether its bootloader is locked.... just sayin ...

    Speaking of worthless posts....

    So the question is, is the thunderbolt worth looking into now? To me that phone is evo on verizon. Taught I should ask here since I did wanna wait for the bionic.... Any ideas?

    Yep, he was replying to me, I'm bkw13 on hofo. It didn't help that he was completely vague. However, he did say it was "unfixable" as you said in the OP title. That makes me consider getting the Thunderbolt or Iphone 4 on a 1 year contract until the next wave of top tier phones come out next year.

    Seems like I saw tweets from blackmanx saying the same thing about the Bionics power mgmt. It does suck. VZW has somewhat of a bad reputation for releasing buggy phones. But this 'bug' sounds bad. Would they release their flagship phone knowing of a problem this bad? Plus, Moto's stock is rebounding. Do they want this slowing or stopping its momentum?
