Sony has belted out their first LTE device and it is headed to AT&T. The HD powerhouse XPERIA ION, will not only be 4G LTE powered , but also feature two HD Cameras with a 4.6 inch HD Screen with HDMI out support. I am always surprised about the amount of traffic that comes to Mobility Digest with the Sony XPERIA ARC a day since it seems that Sony doesn’t get a lot of carrier support here in the US but with specs like these, there is no wonder why sop many folks have them:
Key Features for Xperia ion:
4.6-inch HD Reality display with Mobile BRAVIA® Engine with HD resolution screen (1280 x 720), as well as rear (1080p) and front (720p) cameras for HD recording.
1.5GHz dual-core processor for fast browsing and content download, which can be stored on the internal 16GB flash storage.
12MP rear camera with Sony Exmor R™ for mobile with fast-capture to go from standby to first shot in less than two seconds.
HD sharing through DLNA, HDMI and BRAVIA Sync to quickly and easily stream content on other screens.
I have not gotten the opportunity to use the Sony XPERIA ARC but the videos and feedback on the Exmor R camera is nothing short of outstanding. And now with a 12 megapixel camera, it would not surprise me to see the Sony put the Titan II with it’s 16 megapixels camera down for the count in a camera battle royal.
Stay tuned for more on the Sony XPERIA ION heading to AT&T and let’s hope AT&T puts some muscle behind this device. I would love to see Sony cut into some of the dominance Samsung has been enjoying with it’s Android offering! Stay tuned for more from the CES Show in Las Vegas!
