Sony has come forward with a bit of detail in terms of the Xperia Ion release for those in Canada. Simply put, they have announced the upcoming release and have stated that the handset will be available through various Canadian wireless carriers and authorized national retailers beginning in July. In other words, Sony has confirmed the handset is coming, however it looks like this is another case of having to wait for the carriers to come forward with individual announcements.

Otherwise, the Xperia Ion will have support for 4G LTE connectivity and bring features to include a 4.6-inch HD Reality display with Mobile Bravia Engine (at 1280 x 720), a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot and a 12 megapixel rear facing camera with Sony Exmor R for mobile which is said to allow for “fast capture to go from sleep to snap in just over a second.” Lastly, the Xperia Ion will launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, however there is already a promise of an upgrade to Android 4.0 ICS at a yet-to-be-specified time.
