Sony Xperia ion promo video surfaces as wider release looms

Sony Xperia ion promo video surfaces as wider release looms
The Sony Xperia ion, unveiled long back at CES in January, is gearing up for a launch on AT&T soon, and Sony has now posted two promo videos about the handset, underlining its features and possibly hinting that it’s closer to release. The phone just recently passed FCC certification with AT&T’s bands.

The Xperia ion features a 4.6" HD Reality Display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine for bumped up vivacity of colors and with reduced light reflection for better outdoor visibility. It’s also got a dual-core processor and a 12-megapixel camera with fast capture.

Unlike some other handsets, it’s actually got Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich from the get-go, so you don’t have to upgrade.

The handset has already arrived in Taiwan and Hong Kong, and it’s officially coming to Europe in September, but we don’t have the US release date just yet. Stay tuned - it’s coming on AT&T with support for the carrier’s LTE network, so it should be a treat.
