Sony suspends Xperia Tablet S sales following water resistance fault

Sales of Sony's flagship tablet, the Sony Xperia Tablet S, have been suspended after fears emerged the tablet might not be as waterproof as was originally thought

 
The Xperia Tablet S may have shipped over 100,000 units, but it’s a wonder it made across the sea at all.
 
Sony has had to stop selling its latest flagship tablet due to gaps in between the screen and the case that make it highly susceptible to water damage.

Sony is holding its Chinese manufacturers responsible for the flaw, and has already promised to replace any tablets that have been bought since they went on sale in September.

No time frame has been given for when the tablet will be back on the market just yet, but hopefully it’ll be back in time to stick under the tree at Christmas.

Meanwhile, Sony has advised all users to remain indoors, remain a safe distance from the bathtub and store their tablets at room temperature.
