Sony Xperia Ion coming to Canada exclusively through Rogers?


US residents may already be blessed with the option to purchase the Sony Xperia Ion straight from AT&T. Our Canadian neighbors are still waiting, though. And while they are used to a much more diverse and free mobile system it seems Roger may be pulling an American move on them. The Sony Xperia Ion could be coming exclusively, via Rogers.

At least that is what Mobile Syrup’s leaked document claims with the following sentence:

“We are pleased to announce the device will be coming soon exclusively to Rogers.”

We still do not know any other details for our Canadian friends, and we must consider this is still a rumor. The document does seem to have a bit of a discrepancy, as the first sentence states that an announcement would be coming on July 3rd. July 7th is almost over and still no news.

Grain of salt, friends. Don’t forget the grain of salt.

    Sony (Ericsson) used to have innovative devices and used to be my choice for phones but their negligence to the US market and stupid (and I say STUPID!) decision to go with a sealed battery on all their current high end phones did it for me. FU Sony and keep catering to Apple devices. (Love my PS3 though)

    Canada only? No American support? Who decided this?!

    • Gus70

      Read the article again. The exclusive is to Rogers does not mean exclusive to Canada. The US already has this super suck phone on ATT.

  • tony shark

    It is only on at&t for USA fool.

    Okay, comming from someone who actually HAS the Ion, it is a great phone for people who aren’t looking to sell their soul. Granted I’d prefer it wasn’t on AT&T…..

    To the rest of you ignorant little kids: use a devices before you talk down on it.

  • Boom! Its phatman

    Is this the one thats released running gingerbread when were already on jelly bean now? Unacceptable. There’s no excuse for that, this phone is already running outdated firmware before its released.

  • Ryan R

    Yes, just like 80% of devices it is still on 2.3.7 and guess what? I don’t care. It works, its fast, its stable. Sony did a great job

    Agree people talk down on this phone because it is last year’s tech. Also it has 2.3 instead of 4.0. It will eventually get ics. I may get this phone because I am on a budget. I am not rich like other people here. Lol. This at least better than a windows phone. $49 vs $199. The Samsung will be old in couple of months anyways!!!
