Droid Bionic to Ship with Two Batteries?

Droid Bionic docks

As we keep waiting for the Droid Bionic to ship, rumors keep leaking out of what we can expect.  The newest information to cross the TechnoBuffalo desks comes from a trusted source that has never led us astray before, and things seem to be a little odd in the world of the Bionic.

Our known source has had some time to try out the Droid Bionic already, and they have walked away less than impressed.  While they note that they were trying out a pre-production model, they found the screen and performance to be very unimpressive.  Considering the amount of time they’ve had to work on this device you would think that even pre-production models would be up to snuff, but they have found themselves distinctly disappointed in two of the most important aspects of any new big name phone.

The weirdest twist, however, is that there were two batteries packed with the device.  While they were unsure of the miliamp hours, there were a smaller and larger capacity batteries packed with it, but use of the larger one would require a different battery cover.  We don’t know if Motorola was testing two different batteries for possible inclusion, or if the Bionic will actually ship with both sizes.

Considering the length of time we’ve been waiting for this phone to arrive on Verizon, this news is leaving us a little downhearted.  All we can hope that as it was a pre-production model that some of the kinks will be worked out by the time it ships, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Does this news lessen your excitement for the Droid Bionic at all?
