Sony Xperia ion now priced at the low, low price of zero on contract, at Best Buy
It was somewhat of a big deal for Sony (and yeah, maybe AT&T felt a tingle too) when the Japanese manufacturer was able to get the Sony Xperia ion on to AT&T's smartphone lineup. Even better was the $99.99 price that the carrier bestowed upon contract signing customers purchasing the model. As its want, Best Buy has decided to get its inventory of the device moving out the door by cutting the price of the phone to zero. The deal is available to new customers or existing ones with an upgrade in their pocket, who sign a 2-year contract.

Now free on contract at Best Buy, the Sony Xperia ion

Now free on contract at Best Buy, the Sony Xperia ion

The Sony Xperia ion is equipped with a 4.55 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280. This works out to a high pixel density of 323ppi. Under the hood you will find a dual-core 1.5GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. 16GB of native storage graces the unit, which can be expanded thanks to the 32GB capacity microSD card. Around back is the big deal, a 12.1MP camera with AF and LED flash that captures video in 1080p. A 1.3MP camera in on front for your self-portrait and vide chatting pleasure. A 1900mAh battery keeps the phone alive and Android 2.3 (remember that build?) is installed.

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.

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
