Sony halts Xperia tablet sales due to ’splash-proof’ issue

Sony Corporation has suspended sales of its Xperia tablet computer because some of the devices aren’t as waterproof as initially thought. The Android-powered Xperia Tablet S was described as being ‘splash-proof’ when it was announced in August.

A manufacturing flaw is believed to have caused gaps between the screen and the casing, which has affected the waterproofing.

In a statement, Sony said “We are preparing a free inspection program for customers who have purchased this product, and we will repair, replace, or refund affected devices at no charge.”

More details about affected models and Sony’s inspection program are expected later this month.
