Sony presented, at CES 2012, the first phone after the Ericsson breakup. Xperia Ion will be released in the first half of 2012 and will run on Android 3.2 Gingerbread.
Sony’s partnership with AT&T is responsible for Xperia Play 4G and Xperia X10, but Sony hopes that Xperia Ion will have a even bigger success.
With a 4,6 inch display and a 1280 x 720 resolution, Sony Xperia Ion uses the HD Reality and Mobile BRAVIA Engine and it comes with two HD cameras. The main camera, with a sensor of 12 MP, can record videos at 1080p and the frontal camera, 1.3 MP, at 720p.
Sony Xperia Ion has a dual core 1.5 GHZ processor and can export HD content through DLNA, HDMI and BRAVIA Sync on compatible Tvs. Just like Xperia Play, Xperia Arc and Xperia Acro, Sony Xperia Ion is Playstation certified.
