Sony Xperia ion for AT&T LTE coming with 12MP camera and HD display, and it is just Sony

Sony Xperia ion, you read that right, is the first phone that is just Sony (no Ericsson here), which was expected after Sony bought the Ericsson share out of the joint venture. It is landing exclusively on AT&T's LTE network, just to spice things up.
It is the first dual-core Xperia phone; it features 4.6" HD display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon, 16GB of internal memory, plus a whopping 12MP camera with Exmor R sensor.
under two seconds to get the camera from standby mode to image capture, so speed will be on our side with the humongous 12MP sensor as well.
Availability of the Sony Xperia ion is scheduled for Q2, and the phone is initially going to come with Gingerbread, although the Android 4.0 update shouldn't be that far away afterwards.
The company touts that the phone is PlayStation Certified, and will allow "effortless sharing of content with easy connectivity across multiple screens within the world of Sony", so the "four-screen" dream of the CEO Sir Howard Stinger is finally coming to fruition with the Xperia ion.

0.3 mega front-facing camera is below par. 10 hour talk time are not spectacular, not to mention it drains faster on LTE use.

ICS soon to follow? That's what they said with LG Thrill. 4 months later, we're still on Froyo. I definitely won't buy another LG and will be suspicious of ATT update promises.

Y'all haters need to STFU.!!! It's still an amazing phone with specs that a lot of recent Android being released have, such as dual core, LTE, FFC, etc. The only thing it doesn't have is the newest Android version, but it'll probably be upgraded in the near future. I'm glad Sony dropped the Ericsson from its phones. This phone looks AMAZING and I would love to purchase it if I was an AT&T customer.
