That's what the rep told me when I asked about, oh well I can wait. The bionic does feel a little odd in my hand though after having my O.G. for practically forever, so ja img a flat back would be nice...
Inductive charging supposedly works just as well as normal charging. I'm not 100% sure if it works with a case on or not, we'll have to wait for some people to get the induction charging backpiece for the Bionic.
Just a note, the inductive charging back plate that is used for the Bionic changes the shape of the Bionic. It makes the phone flat on the back, so your case may not fit.
The inductive battery cover for the bionic is available for $22.99, but I cannot find the charging pad or any information about battery life on the droid with the inductive cover and the stock battery vs the extended 2700 mAh without the cover
