A dual core 1.5Ghz processor powers the show here. The Ion is Playstation Certified and will allow users to play PS1 classics and PSN minis. The phone launches with Gingerbread onboard but the Android 4.0 ie ICS update is expected later this year. The Xperia Ion will be sold under the Sony brand on AT&T in the US.
