Fast forward two-and-a-half months, and now we have our first purely Sony phone since the 2001 merger---and what a phone it is!

Luckily for Ma Bell customers, AT&T is bolstering its Android arsenal with six new LTE-enabled and Android-packing devices: the Samsung Exhilarate, Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, Sony Xperia Ion, Pantech Burst, the Pantech Element...
