Note: We do not recommend purchasing this device if you are with Virgin Mobile, as the device does not recognise their SIM cards. The device has been tested with Telstra, Optus and Vodafone, and works without any issues with these networks.

The Sony Xperia Ion is a dual-core smartphone which features a 4.55-inch high definition display (1280 x 720 pixels) and offers 720p video play. A 12-megapixel rear-facing still camera puts it in the upper range of what new smartphones offer, and Sony has made the rear-facing video capture 1080p, with the front camera at 720p. The phone has a 1.5 GHz dual core processor and an HDMI port which allows users to play the phone's movies, photos and video on a TV.

An Aluminum back to the phone gives it durability and distinguishes it from many new multimedia-centric phones on the market that have a plastic composite back. One potential drawback is that there's no removable battery. The smartphone runs on the Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread), with a planned upgrade to v4.0 and has access to Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Talk, Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps and Android Market.
