This is a very beautiful phone, the Sony Xperia Ion has a dual-core processor that is still more than needed for a phone. The rear facing 12 MP camera features Exmor technology that allows for very respectable on-the-fly still images and full 1080p HD videos. The screen is beautiful. I can quickly show many of my pictures from my SD card. The standard 16 GB internal memory can be easily upgraded with an inexpensive 32 GB micro SDHC.
The keys on the bottom do take half a day to get used to compared to my previous Android phones. The only negative that I have seen so far with this phone, is lack of accessories.
Let’s just hope that Sony and AT&T do not drop the ball this time on the Ice Cream Sandwich OS upgrade that has been promised.
Cool ad! The AT&T Sony Xperia Ion Android phone would have been great when they announced it 6 months ago! Now not so much. But then again $50 with rebate for this device is good deal. Amazing external device, phone feels like quality materials are used (brushed aluminum looks great!). That dedicated camera key makes it a cinch to take pictures.
The AT&T Sony Xperia Ion cell phone features include a 4.55-inch HD resolution (1280 x 720) display, a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, a 12MP Exmor-R rear camera offering 1080p video capture, a 1.3MP front-facing cam, HDMI out, HSPA+ and LTE, Playstation-Certified and Google Android 2.3 OS update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. now on Sale price $99.99
Sony’s new "flagship" handset, the new Sony Xperia Ion is pretty decent, and I’m sure it will be running ICS in no time. The $50 price makes it all the better. It does look thick I agree. But it is only 10.8mm. So that isn’t that bad. I love how sony phones look on the outside and the build quality,all they have to do is stuff gs3 internals and it would be a winner.
They have promised to upgraded to ICS, which means it shouldn’t be a problem, the camera is also impressive and the screen gorgeous, the processor, may have some time but still 1.5 ghz is quite impressive, the looks are nice as well, the not-so=comfortable fit may be something to blame, but its not a deal breaker.

The new AT&T Sony Xperia Ion is actually a really nice phone spec wise and design wise. For $99 this is a damn good deal if you really look at features it comes with, even though it has the S3 processor & GB its still a good phone. A 12 megapixel camera and 720p display this is an amazing deal, good job Sony. Plus it’s dual core. This is a beautiful phone at a beautiful price! I’m sure they’ll update it to Android 4.0 soon.

I was actually looking forward to this but now I am not too sure anymore with the HTC One X and the Samsung S3 upcoming. It’s still a beautiful device as far as I can tell though. If it isn’t releasing at a price point lower than the One X, it has very little chance of surviving.
The AT&T Sony Xperia Ion cell phone features include a 4.55 inch HD resolution (1280 x 720) display, a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, a 12MP Exmor-R rear camera offering 1080p video capture, a 1.3MP front-facing cam, HDMI out, HSPA+ and LTE, Playstation-Certified and Google Android 2.3 OS.
The new Sony Xperia Ion is a High end Phone. A dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 4.6-inch 720 x 1280 display and, erm, Gingerbread (we know ICS is coming to this device). Amazing specs, screen, and the camera looks brilliant!Perfect! Thanks for letting me know about that phone! The problem is battery life. thats why everyone is targeting 4.3 plus inches screen. Even i was puzzled by the larger screen promotions. With LTE and camera/video etc. bigger screen allows for a bigger battery.
