We have a bit of a soft spot for the Sony Xperia ion design here at Xperia Blog. We’re not sure if it’s related to the single piece of glass on the front or the aluminium rear, either way it’s a very elegant device. However, it looks even better in red. Check out the hands-on pictures below and convince us that this isn’t one of the sexiest Xperia devices of 2012 so far. If the Xperia ion doesn’t do it for you in the design stakes, which Xperia device released this year wins your heart? Let us know in the comments below.
