We haven't seen much of the AT&T Sony Xperia Ion since it first reared its head back at CES. But if a recent banner ad appearance is to be believed, Sony's 4.7-inch LTE device could be arriving stateside sooner rather than later. The text ad, sighted in Gmail by DroidMatters, states that the Xperia Ion is "coming exclusively to AT&T in June." That's not entirely surprising given the Ion's purported "Q2" launch window, but it's a welcome sign that the phone hasn't been subjected to any further delays.
The Ion, which we first got to play with back in January, represents an important step in Sony's efforts to gain a greater foothold in the U.S. smartphone market. The manufacturer will be hoping the combination of a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, a 4.7-inch 720p display and 4G LTE connectivity will tempt American buyers over the next couple of months.
