Sony Suspends UK Sales of Xperia Tablet S

Sony has had to suspend sales of its Xperia Tablet S product due to splash-proofing issues with the device. According to a statement that the company sent to CNet, some Tablet S models released in September may not meet the stated splash-proof specification due to a "minor" space between the display panel and the back of the tablet.

 

Announced at the end of August, the Xperia Tablet S packs one of Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 chips, a 9.4-inch display, up to 64GB of storage space, a full-sized SD card slot for expanded storage, HDMI connectivity with optional HDMI adapter cable, Wi-Fi, and an optional docking stand that adds three USB ports and one HDMI port.

The Xperia Tablet S launched the first week of September, which means it's been available for just a few weeks. Sony said today that sales of the tablet will be suspended until the problem has been fixed. Additionally, it has promised to repair any of 100,000 tablets that have already been shipped out.

    The Xperia tablet hasn't been successful here at all, I've seen.. One maybe..?
    Everyone else either has an iPad or ASUS Transformer/Nexus 7 or Samsung tablet.

    To be honest, I didn't even know Sony released a T3 tablet.
