The Motorola Droid Bionic gets torn down – Induction charging, Netflix, Global calling features confirmed


The Motorola Droid Bionic won’t be released for a month, but thanks to FCC internal photos we now have a look inside Verizon’s first dual-core LTE phone.  FCC photos, below, show the device’s main board where a Qualcomm MDM5500 modem is visible, along with memory from Elpida, SanDisk, Hynix and Toshiba.  We didn’t spot the device’s TI OMAP 4430 dual core 1GHz processor, however.image

FCC documents also contain the Bionic’s user manual, which gives us a few more details about the device.  According to the manual, the Bionic will have global calling capabilities in over 220 countries thanks to a SIM Card slot.  The Bionic will also come with a Netflix app, as well as 1080p video recording capabilities.

One interesting note is that the Bionic appears to have wireless induction charging capabilities built in, rather than available through a separate back cover accessory.  However, Motorola will likely charge for a induction charging dock.
