After announcing that their Xperia Tablet
S sales would resume this month, Sony has just made the deadline and
announced today that they are now resuming sales, just in time for the
Sony announced a few months back that it would be pulling the Xperia
Tablet S tablet from stores due to a small fault detected in the device
that could cause liquids to enter the components.
A small gap was discovered on the back on the Xperia Tablet S tablets, between the display panel and the tablets back case panel, and Sony’s Xperia S Tablet is supposed to be splash proof.
Sony had already distributed around 100,000 Xperia S tablets in
Europe, the US and Japan when the flaw was detected, and explained when
pulling the tablet from stores that the problem affected only a "limited
number” of units, and free inspections and a repair services where
offered where the Xperia Tablet S was available. The Sony Xperia Tablet S
is priced starting at around £329.
