We have recently been speculating on the reasons why we’ve heard nothing on the Sony Xperia ion since it was announced back at CES in January. At the time we were promised a Q2 launch, but we still have no firm date despite being well into the quarter. Well the Xperia ion was certified by the GCF (Global Certification Forum) earlier this week which could hint that Sony Mobile is in the final preparatory stages before release.
Sony needs to communicate something to its fans in our view. Other high profile handsets that were announced for AT&T after the Xperia ion are already either on sale or pre-order with the carrier. Big handsets such as the Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC One X. Let’s hope Sony has some positive news on the release front in the very near future.
