/// Sony Halts Xperia Tablet S Sales Over Defect in Splashproof Design

October 5, 2012  |  All Things Digital


Doh! The Sony Xperia Tablet S has been out for only about a month, and it’s already being pulled from store shelves. Today, the company announced that it is temporarily suspending sales of the tablet, after it discovered that a limited number of units did not meet its splashproof specification due to a gap between the screen and the case. The Xperia Tablet S features a water-resistant guard that should protect the device from accidental splashes and allow you to use the touchscreen even if your fingers are wet. For customers who already bought the tablet, Sony said it will inspect the units for free, and will replace or refund any defective ones. The company did not indicate when it plans to resume sales, but said it is working to fix the situation as soon as possible. Here is Sony’s official statement: Sony strives to design high-quality products and is committed to providing a positive customer experience.
