Just AT&T? Hopefully they make a generic version of this model.

Rename the thread. The Xperia S is 4.3", the Ion is 4.6". Not the same phone.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this phone is damn ugly...
The best mobile phone brand died with Sony Ericsson's death. Shame on you Sony for killing it! And, of course, for ruining the Xperia brand...

I am a big SE (or Sony now) fan. And I agree that this phone is a little blah. Maybe it is just the front. I will need to see all sides to judge it properly.

(edits) after seeing more sides of the ion. This is looking good. Thank SE for not dropping the ball.

Specs confirmed:

"Inside boasts a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 MSM8260 dual core processor to deliver great battery life and stunning, fluid graphics. This is further supplemented by an Adreno™ 220 GPU, which provides an enhanced level of 3D graphics performance, allowing for high-end, immersive gaming experiences previously limited to PCs and game consoles."

From here, I believe it's fair to presume that the majority of the NXT/2012 Xperia phones will be S3-based.

Also no one has mentioned yet, the obvious fact it has a search button as well?! Not a fan of the typical 4 button Android look, SE adapted only 3 buttons omitting the search which looks better and is nicer to use...also with this layout the back button is on the right side! Madness, haha

Now I officially hate Sony for producing beautiful ION in the US and plastic S in the rest of the world.
