Newegg prices are a lot lower than what you guys mentioned here.

Considering the availability of Xperia Ion with LTE ($50 on contract & $450 off-contract), I wonder who'll be interested in Xperia S.

I agree. If I was an AT&T customer, the Sony Xperia ion would be my phone of choice. Sony has been doing well with upgrading a lot of it's phones to Android 4.0 ICS, so I know an update for the Xperia ion shouldn't take too long. Well, that's provided that AT&T doesn't slow the process down.

Yep - good thing about sony phones are that they are identical all over the world. So unbranded ICS ROMs will be available for Ion in no time (Ion is already shipping with ICS in some countries) and XDA has this awesome thing called 'flashtool' for Sony phones. So I'm not too worried about ATT slowing down the process. I'm gonna debrand it anyway to get rid of the ATT bloatware.
