The Xperia ion was announced way back at CES with expected release date somewhere in Q2 this year (April-June). Well, as it usually happens with Sony, the phone will hit the shelves days before Q2 ends.
AT&T will start offering the LTE-capable Xperia ion on June 24. The smartphone will cost you $99.99 with a 2-year contract.
You can check the Xperia ion specs here. It still runs on Gingerbread, but Sony promises ICS upgrade is on the way.
According to AT&T, it will have exclusivity on the Xperia ion, but we suspect that only means the LTE version, as the Sony Xperia ion HSPA is already available in several markets.
