It’s hard to love Sony these days. Simply put – they’ve disappointed us having crossed the road from the best gadget maker to the mediocre one. Although the Xperia ion is a solid product, it’s not on par with the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. That said, we still hope to see one device that will help the Japanese giant get back to the (high-end) game and provide more choice to the consumers.
I can’t say that the Xperia GX, which sits at the FCC labs as we speak, is what I had in mind. As far as we know, it’s pretty much a Japanese version of the Xperia ion and in that sense Sony may never bring it to the U.S. shores (and elsewhere for that matter). So why bother going through FCC’s process? We’ll never know, but it’s not like the first time we’re seeing some device that will never be introduced in North America going for FCC’s seal of approval.
Anyway, the Xperia GX’s rumored specs include a 4.6-inch 720p screen, pentaband 3G/HSPA radio, 13-megapixel camera on the back, dual-core processor, 16GB of built-in memory, while Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is running the show…
