While Sony outed two impressive looking Android phones in the Xperia P and the Xperia U on the eve of MWC 2012, we also learned the company will be bringing another one of its recently-announced devices to the UK.
When Sony announced its first non-Ericsson branded handsets at CES in the shape of the Xperia S and the Xperia Ion we were a little jealous that the arguably more impressive Ion was only scheduled to launch in the United States.
However, Sony Mobile has corrected that perceived ill by confirming the 4.6-inch 1280x720 handset will in-fact be a global phone and will come to the UK this summer.
The Android 2.3 device, which will be upgradable to Android 4.0 soon enough, headlines with a 12-megapixel camera a 1.5MHz dual-core processor and an NFC chip.
The US iteration of the device is also fitted with an LTE radio, but there's no indication UK users will require a 4G-enabled device until at least the turn of the year.
