The Xperia Ion was announced yesterday at CES and we've got a hands-on video for you today to give you a sense of its specialness.
The Xperia Ion rocks a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor on board but is still stuck in the stone age as far as Android operating systems are concerned. It's shipping with Android 2.3–an older version that won't be exciting anyone. However, Sony has promised a quick update to Android Ice Cream Sandwich in the near future.
The device features a 4.6-inch Reality Display with a resolution of 1280 x720 pixels. 16GB can be found onboard, with the opportunity to expand to 32GB via an SD card, just like on the Galaxy Nexus. Internal RAM is a solid 1GB. NFC is baked inside.
The device also shops with a docking station, allowing it to easily connect to your TV set. While I don't think this smartphone is going to be turning heads, it is quite pleasingly designed and offers a good mid-range experience.
