The Sony Xperia ion launched Sunday via AT&T and is priced at $99 with a new two-year pact. If you go directly to the Sony or Best Buy website, you can find the phone for just $49.99 with the same two-year contract.

I just dont get it. Android 4.0 was released last fall and they are still releasing phones with Android 2.3. Smdh! You have Google about to release their next tablet with 4.1, yet we still releasing phones with an older version of android.

It's such a shame that the Ion just falls short on specs. I just came from the AT&T store and was "testing" the phone out. The pros: Amazing external device, phone feels like quality materials are used (brushed aluminum looks great!) Brilliant display That dedicated camera key makes it a cinch to take pictures The Cons: Gingerbread...I mean really?! The ear piece volume is terribly low and unclear Navigation buttons on screen are impossible to see at night (small thin bar lights up under the icons (back, menu, etc...) With just a few tweaks the phone would definitely be a contender, but considering you can get it as low as $50 on contract, might make it appealing to the non-hardcore android users.

Now that's a awesome commerical. Tried to get mine today but says that my upgrade won't be available till AUGUST I don't mind waiting for another two months. I'll just buy the dock first and then the phone and plug in my PS3 controller

I personally don't care about which version of Android it has as long as I have Adobe Flash support. My big thing about this commercial for the US is that if you pause the video right when the guy plugs it into the smart dock, you see that it's a unlocked Ion which Sony says idn't available in the US.
