Sony stops Xperia Tablet S sales after waterproof failure

Tablet temporarily taken off shelves after it is found it may not be water resistant as first marketed

Sony Mobile has halted sales of the Xperia Tablet S after it discovered the device may not be water resistant as advertised.

The tablet, the first under Sony Mobile’s Xperia brand, was launched at IFA in Berlin in August and marketed as ‘splash-proof’.

The manufacturer said it will repair any devices found to be damaged and have blamed a manufacturing flaw for the problems. No date has been confirmed for it to go back on sale.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S has been on sale globally for just under a month, with around 100,000 devices shipped so far.

It is powered by a Tegra 3 quad-core processor and runs Android 4.0.3 operating system. It has an aluminium body and 9.4-inch screen.
