Sony Xperia Ion Serves Up LTE and a 12 Megapixel CameraS

The Sony Xperia Ion is Sony's first new smartphone since they called it quits with former partner Ericsson. It has a 12 megapixel shooter, and of course, will run on AT&T's LTE network.

Standing as Sony's first LTE offering, the Xperia Ion has a 4.6-inch screen, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and a 1280x720 Bravia screen. The cameras are a point of emphasis for Sony as the rear cam uses their Exmor sensor technology and a front cam that captures 720p video. The Xperia Ion will be available in the second quarter of the year. [Sony and AT&T CES Liveblog]
