Sony Xperia Ion

Why it's Hot: The Xperia Ion is the first and only LTE smartphone from Sony. The device packs a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and has a large, 4.6-inch HD "Reality Display" powered by Sony's Bravia Engine technology. The Ion has a 12MP digital camera, and the price is right at just $50 (via Sony's online store) with a new service contract. Unfortunately, the device's software can't really match its hardware specs; The Ion still runs Android v2.3 Gingerbread, not v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or v4.1 Jelly Bean.
