AnonD-56158, 02 Jun 2012so true. this phone's specs look good but with gx just announced, i rather wait for that one t... moreThe thing with Sony is they make good phones but from what i've seen they are pretty much outdated when they actually arrive. If I was to buy a smartphone right now it would be from either Sony, Samsung, or Apple(would have added LG too but i'm still not too sure about their phones) because they are the only phone makers that I actually like(had a bad experience with HTC).
Baby Wade, 31 May 2012Decided to not get this phone, realized it will be outdated when it finally releases in the US... moreso true. this phone's specs look good but with gx just announced, i rather wait for that one than the ion. same thing happen to xperia s, when it was announced it seems to be a great phone until htc one x was released and realized s was very thick and outdated. sony is slow and i think they will never catch up with samsung and htc.
Decided to not get this phone, realized it will be outdated when it finally releases in the US. Might get the GS3 or some other phone in december, if Sony would just bring the GX to the US that would be great. Whoever else still wants this phone good luck.
Well looks like it really is coming: http://www.engadget.com/2012/05/29/sony-xperia-ion-hits-fcc/
I have two options: 1) upgrade to this phone next month or 2) wait until mid-december when I have to renew my contract, because by then there will be better phones out.
Finally has been released, pictures and announcements found at www.xperiablog.net
At this time, only seems to be released in Taiwan, but its the beginning..!
Saw the video of the Xperia S with ICS & it looks good. Hope when the Ion gets its ICS update that it will have all of features of the S plus a better lock screen. Really hope the battery life doesn't decrease like some phones & that there are not alot of bugs after the update to ICS.
AnonD-56278, 25 May 2012what s the difference from s?slightly bigger screen, smaller hdd, different styling, etc, etc.
AnonD-35447, 23 May 2012holy .... is this battery build in or is it replaceable?This phone will has battery build in.
