Sony will soon launch two new handsets the Sony Iona and Sony Neo L in India. The Ion is expected to be released in August while the Neo L could hit the markets by end of July or early August.

The Sony Neo L sports a 4 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen with resolution of 854×480 pixels. This handset will sail on a 1 GHz single core processor with 512MB RAM.
