Droid Bionic teardown

Can't have a high-profile launch without a high-profile teardown, and the folks at iFixit have done their thing with the Motorola Droid Bionic. There's really nothing of any great surprise in here, though it's certainly confirmed that there's 16GB of internal storage (it's a SanDisk SDIN4C2-16G chip, if you must know), even if you can't access it all.

Droid Bionic teardown reveals smartphone parts, screws


From the model number of that 16GB card, sdin4c2-16g, I can only assume it's Class-2 (slow!). How would a Class-10 card do in there? Would it have any significant speed improvement?? I would imagine it would - to some extent, at least.

Are you saying that the OS is responsible for read/write functions to the SD Card? I would have thought that's chipset code/functionality and wouldn't be limited to OS.

Regardless, seems silly to put a 1.5Ghz dual-core proc in then slow things down with a sub-par SD card. Kinda of like putting in a 8MP when 12MP cameras are all of $1.00 more per...

Ugh...Motorola is still using the same headphone jack contact springs. I'll never buy another Motorola phone until they change those connections to either a ribbon cable or soldered connections.
