Sony Xperia ion now available at Rogers, can be yours for $549.99 outright

Here it is Canada… Sony’s first LTE-enabled smartphone has officially launched at Rogers. The Xperia ion can now be yours, as expected, for $49.99 on a 3-year and ranges north to $549.99 outright. The ion comes seriously stacked with specs: 4.6-inch display (1280 x 720), 12MP Sony Exmor R camera that shoots 1080p videos, LTE connectivity, has a 1.5GHz dual core processor and is 10.8 mm thin. Now, the ion currently runs OS 2.3 Gingerbread but is on a path towards Ice Cream Sandwich sometime “soon.”
