The Xperia Ion will set you back $49.99 with a three-year contract, $449.99 with a two-year contract, and $499.99 with a one-year or monthly agreement. If you’d rather not sign a contract at all, you’ll need to shell out no less than $549.99 for the device.
The Sony Xperia Ion has a 4.6-inch 1280×720 HD touchscreen, a 12 MP camera with 1080p HD video recording, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, but disappointingly runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. An update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is promised. That said, Jelly Bean is already out. So Sony is way behind on this.
Anyway, if you’d like to get an Xperia Ion nonetheless, here’s where you should be headed.
