aqua24, 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 moreThe thing with Sony is they make good phones but from what i've seen they are pretty much outdated when they actually arrive.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Baby Wade, 31 May 2012Decided to not get this phone, realized it will be outdated when it finally releases in the US...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s, when it was announced it seems to be a great phone until htc one x was released and realized s was very thick and outdated.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Decided to not get this phone, realized it will be outdated when it finally releases in the US.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.
soc, 25 May 2012what s the difference from s?slightly bigger screen, smaller hdd, different styling, etc, etc.
Love the speed, 23 May 2012holy .... is this battery build in or is it replaceable?This phone will has battery build in.

Come on why don't they put xvid divx codecs in it and where is the camera button? All the rest is ok. It isn't nice but it's ok and the 4.55 inch screen is big enough. I just might consider to buy it. Will see.
What is wrong with Sony i just don't understand.They are taking one month every time to release Ion in a new city.At this rate how much time they will need to release the phone in 70 countries,u can imagine.For me it's over 2 n half month since i have sold my HTC Sensation XE and waiting for this Sony Xperia Ion.If this mobile doesn't come in June in India,i'll go for SGS3 or HTC One X.Don't want wait more.Not me only many people in other countries have also got fed up waiting for this phone.Don't want to wait again for GX or any other similar phone from sony
