Sony Xperia Tablet S Resumes Sale

By - Source: TechRadar | B 4 comments

Manufacturing defect had halted sales of the device.

Following Sony pulling the Xperia Tablet S from shelves at the start of October due to water damage issues, the company has, as promised, made the product available again.

Sony promised to re-release the Xperia Tablet S before the end of November, and it's indeed done exactly that, but just about. Still, it's subsequently giving the device a chance of performing commercially during the coveted holiday shopping period.

The defect for the 9.4-inch Xperia Tablet S uncovered a small gap between the display panel and the device's back case, which could potentially allow liquids to leak through its casing.

While Sony stressed the problem affected a "limited number" of units, the issue was discovered when the firm began to offer free inspections and a repair service in select territories where the tablet was available.

    Sony needs to get their acts together, otherwise they'll lose more territories including their homeland, Japan.

    I recently played with one Sony tablet, terrible performances.
