Sony Ericsson reserves Xperia Ion name; could be for the LT28at flagship model

Sony Ericsson reserves Xperia Ion name; could be for the LT28at flagship model
We recently reported on a possible flagship model for Sony Ericsson that appeared on the Bluetooth SIG site. With a 4.55 inch Reality display weighing in at 720p, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 13MP camera, this device promises to raise the bar in the Android world. The one thing about the phone that definitely needs to be changed is the code name LT28at that the unit has been branded with at the moment. We would imagine that a name change is coming since LT28at doesn't exactly roll off your tongue.

Actually, when Sony Ericsson starts its special presentation at the upcoming CES on January 9th, we might see this model rolled out as the Sony Ericsson Xperia Ion. The joint venture filed for a trademark on the Xperia Ion name on December 13th with a serial number of 85493863. The trademark application is requested for mobile phones, the same answer Sony Ericsson put down for its trademark applications on the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY and Sony Ericsson Xperia arc.

This will probably be the last flagship model to have the Sony Ericsson branding. Sony announced earlier this year that it is buying out its partner in the joint venture and will be dropping the Ericsson name from its phones sometime in the middle of next year.

Your the one who isn't updated, The x10 was updated Q3 this year to 2.3.3. And the entire 2011 Xperia phones each has already received 3 - 4 updates to date.

Yeah X10 doesn't deserve to get updates.
