Are you looking for a new AT&T smartphone? If so, you may want to consider the deal Best Buy is currently offering: the Sony Xperia ion for free on a two year contract. This offer is good for new customers as well as upgrades. As usual, it requires a two year commitment with a qualifying data package.
While the Sony Xperia ion may not carry the same name or internal hardware as the HTC One X or Samsung Galaxy S III, it is still a very capable smartphone with an awesome camera.
The Android smartphone features a 4.6 inch HD screen, Android 2.3, 1GB of RAM, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 12MP rear facing camera, NFC, 4G LTE, and 16GB of on board storage. It is disappointing that the Xperia ion is only running Android Gingerbread at this time, but the camera makes up for it. It is billed as one of the best on the market, making this a great device for photo junkies.
Again, Best Buy has the Sony Xperia ion for $0 on a two year contract for a limited time only. For comparison, AT&T sells it for $99 on a two year contract.
