The Sony Xperia ion is nothing if not a stylish piece of kit to hold in the palm of your hand. And while your friends are dazzled by the looks of your new phone, wait until you tell them the price.

At one point & time I actually wanted this phone pretty bad, but now I want the LT30/Mint.

I just don't understand why the international Ion launched with ICS while the American Ion launched with Gingerbread...

@RamyRamz69: Not only is the American version running Gingerbread, the LTE unlocked/international (LT28i) version of the Ion is too. I know because I own one. I want ICS or JB already!! Can't believe Sony is not doing anything about an update for this phone. >:(

Eh....I live in Dubai, and I went to the Sony Mobile UAE page and this is what I found:
Also, if you go to Youtube and search for Xperia Ion videos uploaded this week or month you're gonna see that it launched with ICS in Asia, Africa and Europe
