We heard about the Xperia ion yesterday, and managed to get hold of a video demonstrating it (the video has since been removed for some reason).
In the video the demonstrator said the Xperia ion will be exclusive the the US’s AT&T network, however we weren’t sure weather it was exclusive the the US or just exclusive to AT&T within the US.
We really hoped that is was the latter, but unfortunately an email from Sony (Ericsson)’s PR confirms that this is not the case.
“The ion is US only at the moment.”
So hopefully we’ll see it coming to our shores too (possibly without 4G functionality), but it’s doubtful.
