Sony Xperia ion launches – already down to $50
Well that was fast. You probably already checked out our review earlier today of the new Sony Xperia ion. As we previously reported, this Android powered handset from Sony launched today on AT&T for $99 with a new two-year commitment.

If you liked what you saw in that review and decided to pull the trigger on this one, do yourself a favor and skip AT&T’s website and go directly to Best Buy or Sony. Both sites are currently offering the Sony Xperia ion for just $49.99 with a new contract.

While the device didn’t exactly blow us away, we did find its $99 price point quite alluring. Shave 50% off of that and Gingerbread might not look so bad after all.
