Sony has officially introduced its Xperia Ion smartphone in Taiwan, where it should become available in the near future, for an unknown price.
As we told you earlier this week, the Xperia Ion for Taiwan has the model number LT28i, unlike AT&T’s version (LT28at). It doesn’t have LTE connectivity, but the rest of its features are unchanged from the North American edition, including: a 4.6 inch Reality Display with 1280 x 720 pixels, Wi-Fi, DLNA, 12MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of built-in memory. The Ion runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread, with an update to Android 4.0 ICS being planned for later this year.

For the moment, we don’t know if the Xperia Ion will be introduced in other markets. But we’ll let you know as soon as we find more details on this.
