Absolutely Everything Is Better In HD, Including Gizmodo

HD is just a better way to view anything, period. So why are you looking at Gizmodo in anything else?

Just click the HD view icon sitting to the right of the eyeball and magnifying glass on the top right, and you'll be instantly treated to big, crisp, beautiful Gizmodo in HD. The new, dynamic layout adjusts based on browser size, and to the right of the HD image accompanying the story you're reading, you'll see a continuous, scrollable flow of full of the latest stories.

It's at this point that your HD-less smartphone may begin to get jealous of your browser.

Sony's first LTE smartphone, the Xperia™ ion, shows photos and video in HD on a 4.6"* display. It's powered by Sony's Mobile BRAVIA® engine, which uses contrast enhancement to bring out image details, reduces any noise caused by video compression algorithms, and applies a sharpness filter — all to bring out the best in photographs and videos. Like, say, the millions of Sony Entertainment Network songs, movies, and new TV shows available for the Xperia ion.

Yes, you can shoot your own HD videos, too. Check back next week for an in-depth look at the HD video-capturing capabilities of the Sony Xperia ion, the official sponsor of Gizmodo's HD view.

*Screen measures approximately 4.6" diagonally.
