Sony Xperia ion available exclusively at AT&T on June 24


It took a while to see an official announcement about Sony Xperia ION on one of the US wireless carriers. The LTE-enabled smartphone cant really compete against the likes of HTC One X or GALAXY S III but it still has pretty good specs to offer for a bargain price I would say cosidering the smartphone will be available June 24th at AT&T for only $99 on a two-year contract.

Sony Xperia Ion packs a 4.6-inch HD Reality (1280 x 720p) display with Mobile BRAVIA Engine, 12-megapixel rear-facing camera with Exmor R for Mobile sensor, 1080p HD video recording, 1 MP 720p HD front-facing camera. It is powered by Qualcomm’s 1.5Ghz dual core S4 processor, 16 GB of ROM expandable for up to 32GB via microSD slot, runs Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread (upgradable to Android 4.0 ICS OS later) and it is PlayStation certified for premium gaming.
