AT&T Xperia ion solidly priced for June 24 takeoff

We’ve been bringing our readers all the developments on a very nice smartphone indeed, the Sony Xperia ion, heading to AT&T. It seems to have been a long wait to finally find out a release date but at last the details are out and it has been very solidly priced at less than many had expected.

The Sony Xperia ion is a 4G LTE smartphone but only yesterday we told how an Xperia ion HSPA variant was also on the way for global areas not yet LTE-equipped. News that the launch date for the Xperia ion on AT&T has now been set should please an awful lot of people who’ve had a long wait to get their hands on the Xperia ion. The release date is June 24 and the very reasonable price is $99.99 on the usual two-year contract. The Xperia ion is a stunning phone to look at and with some very decent features and specs and at the almost dirt cheap price set it will be a great choice for many consumers.

News of the release date and price for the Sony Xperia ion comes to us from Phandroid where you can also see the official press release. One of our only criticisms of the Xperia ion is that it will launch running Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread instead of 4.0 ICS although an upgrade will come. As a refresher on some of its main specs and features we can tell you that the Xperia ion has a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S3 dual-core processor, 4.6-inch HD Reality LCD display with resolution of 1280 x 720, 12-megapixel rear camera capable of 1080p video recording and 1-megapixel front-facing camera.

Top that off with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, expandable with microSD, and you have a very decent handset indeed, along with that beautiful sleek design and LTE connectivity of course. Have you been waiting for the Sony Xperia ion on AT&T? Are you as impressed as we are with the low price of this notable smartphone? Let us know with your comments.

    Considering it being released without ics, no the price doesn’t surprise me.
    lets hope the update will not slow the phone down and then sony drop the device after all the issues surface. like they do every other phone. hopefully now that ericsson is out of the picture we can see some better support for their (flag ship devices). who knows with sony.
