    Sony Xperia Ion Review: Punching Above Its Weight Class

    It’s been a long time since Sony released a smartphone in the U.S. market that had a chance of hitting it off with customers — too many of their recent releases have either been meant for niche markets (the Xperia Play 4G) or were expensive and unlocked (nearly all of these things).

    Besides a fear of imminent conjunctivitis from handling the same phone as hundreds of others at the Sony Xperia Press Event at the GSMA Mobile World Congress…what else comes to mind?

My little E3 meeting calmed my fears of device abandonment as it seems SE is ready to support the Play with a… Read More
