    The Sony Xperia S (coming to Europe in March), which will go by the name Xperia Ion when it comes state-side in the second quarter, just had a couple of interesting features revealed that were not shared before at the CES demonstration. Along with the regular gamut of high-end features like a 720p display, a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, and a 12-megapixel Exmor R camera, the phone will also boast a "dirt-repellent - UV-active nano-coating" and a newly advanced fast-charging system for the battery. Here's a quote from the AndroidCentral article with more details on this new fast-charging system,

    More and more, these new Sony phones are beginning to look pretty impressive. They are packing in a ton of powerful features, they have a slim and elegant design, and Sony has, so far, held to its commitment to update their phones to the newest version of Android far more quickly than in the past, and even faster than several of their competitors sometimes. Is Sony worth a new look in 2012?

    I hope vzw gets more Sony phones. I was shocked they got the XPERIA Play. If it would have been more beefed up spec wise I would have gotten it.

    So do I. Their hardware is phenomenal. This phone looks pretty amazing and has the specs. Add to that the "nanocoating" and charging technology and they have a winner. Fantastic phone right here (my opinion of course)

    I would like to see an updated Play in H1 bringing some quad core love with the gaming controls. The only thing keeping me away now is the obselecent hardware.

    Not saying it wasn't good on release, just kinda dated now.
