Rogers kicks off 6 GB/$60 plan, Sony Xperia Ion in tow

Canadians looking for an affordable LTE-capable device and lots of data to chew on will be interested to hear that Rogers has started a 6 GB promotional plan and now has the Sony Xperia Ion for sale for $49.99 on a three-year contract. The $60 plan includes unlimited calling to 10 Canadian numbers, unlimited texting, unlimited evenings and weekends, and 200 weekday minutes on top of the data. Rogers is even willing to toss in data sharing to multiple devices at $10 off every month for the next 10 months to help you burn through those 6 GB, though the promo is only running until August 8. 

As for the Sony Xperia Ion, you can read our full review here, but here's a run-down of the specifications.

  • 4.6-inch 1280 x 720 display
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 12 megapixel camera
  • 16 GB internal memory
  • LTE and HSPA+ connectivity

While I'm still not sure I'd pick the 6 GB plan over Mobilicity or WIND's current promotions (especially with that three-year commitment Rogers includes), it's hard to argue with Rogers coverage, and ever-expanding LTE is always sweet. Any Canadians interested in picking one up can find the Sony Xperia Ion over in the Rogers online store and can check out the 6 GB promotional plan over here
