Sony Xperia ion expands its rollout as Hong Kong is next on the list
Although we’re still cautiously awaiting word about the availability of the Sony Xperia ion with AT&T here in the US, it seems that the smartphone is continuing its global rollout as Hong Kong appears to be next on the list.

Late last month, the smartphone was released in Taiwan, but now it’s slowly moving towards its next market in Hong Kong. Despite not having an exact date for its release, Sony Hong Kong has actually started accepting reservations for the device – where it’s being attached with a suggested retail price of $670 (HK$ 5,198). No doubt it’s a wallet busting cost, but hey, that’s the price you’ll need to cough up to experience this prized smartphone.

At this point, considering that they’re currently accepting reservations for it, the release date shouldn’t be too far away. As much as some diehard fans would fathom snagging at the opportunity of picking it up, the hefty price point might dissuade people from going through with it. Nevertheless, we’re sorely hoping to hear something regarding its availability with AT&T in the near future. Seeing that we're nearing the end of May and close to knocking on June's door, we're eager to hear something soon about it – especially considering that we first heard about this phone back in January at CES.
