Sony halts Xperia Tablet S sales due to manufacturing flaw

Just about a month after releasing the Xperia Tablet S, Sony was forced to stop the sale of its latest Android tablet due to a discovered manufacturing flaw.

What You Need To Know:

  • Sony revealed that there were some gaps between the screen and the case of the tablet. This makes the tablet susceptible to water damage. Ironically, the tablet was designed to be water-resistant.
  • The problem is perceived as a manufacturing flaw. The Xperia Tablet S was manufactured at a plant in China.
  • Sony has already sold about 100,000 Xperia tablets so far. Sony promises to fix the tablets that have been damaged due to the manufacturing flaw. The company has not yet decided when to continue the sale of its tablet.
  • The 9.4-inch tablet was first released in U.S. in September 7, followed by launches in Japan and Europe.
