Android 4.0.4 ICS update heading to AT&T’s Sony Xperia Ion

September 20, 2012
Releasing a flagship phone with an outdated version of Android was one of the factors that led to a not-so-impressive Sony Xperia Ion. But to the delight of owners of the phone, Sony is making good on its promise to provide a swift upgrade to Ice Cream Sandwich. After we saw the Android 4.0 firmware hitting the LTE variant of the phone a few days back, the update is reportedly coming to the Xperia Ion on AT&T.

4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich update rolling out to Xperia Ion LTE

September 15, 2012
It was a sad day for customers who bought the Xperia Ion LTE when they found out it had shipped with Gingerbread instead of Ice Cream Sandwich. Thankfully, Sony didn't let that error live for long as an official update to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 has begun rolling out to Sony Xperia Ion LTE owners.

Creating music videos with Sony Xperia Ion? Sony proves its possible.

August 31, 2012
Once upon a time, video cameras were massive, heavy devices that used something that we used to call film. Those were dark and primitive times. Sure, bulky high-def camera equipment exists still even to this day (though sans traditional film), but is it necessary to create high quality content? Sony says it isn't. With most things though, proof is in the pudding. The task was to create an entire music video using just the Xperia Xperia Ion smartphone.

Rogers’ Sony Xperia Ion officially on sale for $49.99

July 17, 2012

Can’t wait to get your hands on the Sony Xperia Ion, but want to know first how much it’ll set you back? We now have confirmation from Rogers Wireless about the price of the phone, and it’s one that doesn’t stray too far from what we’ve reported before. The good news is you can now order the Experia Ion from the carrier’s website.

The Xperia Ion is Sony’s first LTE phone, dontcha know? And the price that you have to pay for that kind of luxury is $49.99 with a three-year contract. We’re not sure why anyone would want to purchase the phone on a shorter contract, as the two-year contract ($449) almost cost the same as buying the phone without a contract ($549.99). But we [...]

Sony launches unlocked Xperia NXT (S, P, and U) series in the US

July 16, 2012

The Xperia NXT series was first announced during the Mobile World Congress, back in February. The three devices in the series, the Xperia S, P, and U are not Sony’s standard bearers (that spot is reserved to the LTE-enabled Xperia Ion), but they do deliver nevertheless decent specs and a classy appearance.

Our biggest gripe with the three devices is on the software side. The Xperias come with Gingerbread on board, which is a crying shame, no matter how you look at it. However, Sony has promised updates to ICS (for now) for all its recent devices, and, up until now, they’ve been quite good at respecting their update schedules.

Sony today announced that you can [...]
