(LAS VEGAS) -- Sony entered the LTE cellphone game at the Consumer Electronics Show with its latest offering, the Xperia Ion smartphone. Along with 4G LTE speed from AT&T, the phone features an HDMI output, 4.6-inch display (compared to a 3.5-inch display on the iPhone 4S), a 12 megapixel camera and a thin body.
Beyond the traditional smartphone specs there are a lot of features that make it uniquely Sony. It runs a mobile version of Sony’s Bravia engine, the same technology that goes into Sony Bravia HDTVs, making for especially vivid colors on the screen. And since it’s a Sony you can download PlayStation and PlayStation portable games to the phone. It also has a compatible dock to view on a larger display.
No price has been set, but expect to see it on store shelves in the second quarter of 2012.
