    Sony Xperia ion for coming with 12MP camera and HD display, and it is just Sony

    Finally, after months of leaking, waiting and teasing, the first multicore smartphone from Sony comes for a fact. And it is landing exclusively on AT&T's LTE network, just to spice things up.

    The phone that got popular under the codename Nozomi, will be called the Sony Xperia ion on the carrier, and feature 4.6" HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon, 16GB of internal memory, plus a whopping 12MP camera with Exmor R sensor.

    Yes, you read that right, it is called just Sony Xperia ion, meaning that it is also the first announced device after Sony bought the Ericsson share out of the joint venture, and the first phone that is just Sony.


    As was mentioned, the Sony Xperia ion will sport LTE connectivity, rounding up a pretty formidable Android high-end, which we can't wait to get our mitts on, and give this 12MP camera on the back the review treatment. Sony claims that it takes under two seconds to get the camera from standby mode to image capture, so speed will be on our side with the humongous 12MP sensor as well.

    Availability of the Sony Xperia ion is scheduled for Q2, and the phone is initially going to come with Gingerbread, although the Android 4.0 update shouldn't be that far away afterwards.

    The company touts that the phone will be PlayStation Certified, and will allow "effortless sharing of content with easy connectivity across multiple screens within the world of Sony", so the "four-screen" dream of the CEO Sir Howard Stinger is finally coming to fruition with the Xperia ion.

    Except for the camera and screen size, it's mostly up to date.
    I can already see it being "another regular Android phone" in a couple of months.
    However,I'd certainly like to own it, just because it's the first SONY phone in a long time

    Call me spoilt, but I think it looks boxy and bland... Maybe because we saw other leaks of Sony phones... The Arc has a much better design... However, the more Sony models the merrier, we are not used to it...

    I agree it doesn't look as exciting as Arc. However, specs are nice.

    This one does not draw my attention at all
    Xperia S does it and it has got that high pixel density of an iPhone but with proper widescreen aspect
    Same spec in a smaller and more beautiful package.

    It does look pretty bland imo.
    besides these specs are going to bepretty common in 2012, but with a quad core chip inside...
    SGS III surely comes with 12 megapxl shooter also, and the one in arc wasn't particulary good, SGS II and Iphone 4s beat it.

    International Sony Xperia ion (LT28i) announced in Taiwan

    ".....
    The phone is almost identical to the US carrier option - 4.6" 720p LCD screen backed by Mobile BRAVIA technology, 12MP camera with 1080p video capture, Snapdragon chipset with 1.5GHz dual-core processor, NFC and 16GB built-in memory (expandable with microSD cards). In other words, it's like a bigger Sony Xperia S, unfortunately including the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS at launch (with an ICS upgrade coming)."

    Actually Xperia GX is a bit shorter comparing to the Ion

    Ion: 133 x 68 x 10.8 mm
    GX: 131 x 69 x 8.6 mm
    S: 128 x 64 x 10.6 mm

    Anyways, looks like its out already:
    Xperia ion released in Taiwan a few days early

    Too bad no ICS out-of-the-box





    Cheers,

    That's very unfortunate if true. Maybe Sony will change this as release date approaches? In NOV we'll see Jelly Bean, so I can't imagine still having GB onboard with "the latest" device.
    ICS is being rolled out for many Xperia devices, so I can only hope Ion will be one of them prior to its international release.
