Sony's Xperia ion Android smartphone is now available from AT&T for $99.99 with a new two-year contract. The Xperia ion offers a 4.6-inch HD Reality display, a dual-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, support for AT&T's 4G LTE network, 16GB of storage and a 12-megapixel camera. You may want to read out full review before you run out and jump on a new contract with this phone, however. While its display is attractive and its features compelling, the phone's battery was hardly able to last until the afternoon during our tests. The device also runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread instead of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, although Sony has done a nice job adding several features and says that ICS is on the way.
