Update: A big contrats to the winner of the Sony Xperia ion – this goes to member “Silver Arrow” in our forum. No worries if you didn’t win… our iPhone 5 contest is still happening here.

The Xperia ion, Sony’s first LTE-enabled smartphone, launched in Canada last month via Rogers. Specs have this Android coming with a 4.5-inch 1280×720 TFT display with Bravia Engine, 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 12MP camera that shoots 1080p HD videos, Wi-Fi, NFC, and a respectable 1900mAh battery. You can read our full review here.

You like? You wanna win one? Here’s our latest contest: Win a Sony Xperia ion! In order to win the ion all you have to do is either follow us and re-tweet this contest on Twitter (@mobilesyrup), “Like Us” on Facebook (Facebook.com/MobileSyrup), or join our Forum or hang out with us on Google +. All current Facebook, Twitter and Google + followers are automatically entered. This contest closes September 30th and we’ll announce the winner shortly after.

Good luck to all who enter!

    Nice

      The Ion is almost a copy to the $300 Koodo SG2x:
      Ion has:
      G I N G E R B R E A D LOL with Fries on the side!!

      LTE (Good or bad, you know that it drains your battery)
      Same 4.5″ screen size but at 720x 1280
      12MP vs 8MP ( you know that more is not necessarily better!)

      SG2x has:
      DC-HSDPA+ at 42Mbps Double that of Ion without the LTE drain!
      2MP Front Camera, vs 1.3 for the Ion
      Same CPU and GPU
      Tons of support from XDA with Jelly Bean out for a month!

      I rather get a $300 SG2x or if I really want HD LTE I’ll get the SG2 HD LTE from Bell, thank you very much!
      The ION its a decent phone with round specs, but Gingerbread makes me pee takes me back to 2011 and makes me think of Katy Parry, not a good thing!
      Wake me up when Jelly Bean (not even ICS) at that point I will check the Calendar and it will say 2013, if the price is around $300 I might buy it, I like the exterior better than the Samsung ones.

    Hi Everyone,
    All the good luck. I’ve already touched it and checked out all the features last last week in one shop. It’s 4.7 inch HD 3D display. It has external slot also for micro sd card expandable upto 32GB. It’s battery is little more power than Xperia S, except these major changes the features of this cute smart phone are same as Xperia S. If you see once and use it you should think of getting it.

  • KID ANDROID

    I’m an avid user of all mobile related sites & I enter all their contests but as I’m becoming addicted to surfing all the sites I’ve chosen to stick with whichever Site makes me a winner first. I will stick with that Site & I promote it every chance I get. Mobile Syrup your in the running now all you have to do is make me a winner & you to become a winner in a sense, and it would be good to have my only Site for info be Canadian as I’m Canadian.
