Talking about specification, this is a dual core handset while sg3 is a quad core processor device. Camera doesn't matter much when it comes to smartphone...as for you if megapixels of camera is a deciding factor, you better go for Nokia 808 pureview with 41 mp (38 mp effective)...and mind you sg3 has already a launch date, while this device has no information as far as its release date is concerned...Sony has a habit of crawling at a dead slow speed. Isn't this a shame that a device with no extra ordinary specification is taking ages to release even after its announcement which was way back in January...they need to learn from Samsung and Htc as these companies know how to take care of customer's desire of having a smartphone with standard specification, unlike Sony.
and sony you say you want to get rid da billion losses and again slowly get out your product keep dreaming
guys waiting for ION read the click the link above and read the article.... this summers gonna be cool

When this came out at CES Sony and AT&T said it would be exclusive to the US. Fast forward and this phone has been released in Taiwan and forthcoming international release. Not a peep about US release. Great job Sony keep alienating the last market that will save you.
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2012When its coming in europe ???????sorry this fone come's not to market in Europe. There is no really no one trader whwere you can pre-order ist... this says enough!.
For me it is Vaporware! No hands on video or anything else from Community. Only something from CES and some full blown messages from SONY itself... Sorry Sony Guys ! This Game is over! I will wait here for max 2 more weeks for the release of the little Brother Xperia sola. the only new Sony fone with an microSD Card for European market... The Samsung AMOLED b*lls**t is not my goal... if it is not buyable then I will go for an HTC Evo 3d for small bucks.
The longer Sony & At&t wait to release this phone, the more I don't want it. I mean come on now the One X for at&t was announced back in late february (a full month after the ion's announcement) & is getting released this sunday. Such a long wait could be a good thing but on the other hand it has me worried about this phone.
SG3 is coming soon, why it takes too long for xperia ion to be released in the market. i'm waiting for this phone to be available in KSA. i might be tempted to buy SG3.. please sony let us know the release date of this experia ion.
Baby Wade, 29 Apr 2012I totally agree with you, this phone should have been released as early as march. The SG3 migh... moreIf the Sony Mobile LT28i is priced anywhere near or below Samsung i9100 (SGS2), then I'll go for the LT28i(ION).
I just received an email saying Xperia ION will be released on 6-10th May in HK! :) Taiwan to be released after that...
Does this phone have a slot for a regular sim card (I think I remember hearing there is a slot for micro sim on this phone)?
pros: 12MP camera, microSD slot and LTE
cons: lower pixel density than S version and no cool look of transparent antenna as S version.
anshul.blackpearl, 29 Apr 2012sony is the slowest reptile in this world...i mean just imagine a phone which was announced wa... moreI totally agree with you, this phone should have been released as early as march. The SG3 might make me change my mind about getting this phone.
Saimoooo, 28 Apr 2012Every thing about it is very good but we are in the quad core agewe are ALMOST there. i just dont feel the tegra 3 is realy right for a phone that doesn't connect to a lap dock or tablet. yes the low power is great but it could use more when all 4 cors are running
