The Sony Xperia Tablet S is a mighty fine tablet for 2012, rocking powerful innards and a design completely unique versus all other tablet offerings on the market. It was all set to enjoy good sales across the UK however the company have revealed that they have halted the sales of their Xperia Tablet S due to a manufacturing defect, whereby a number of the tablet computers have come off the production line with gaps between the screen and the chassis. Sony halting sales means that some of these defected tablets made it in to stores, which is bad PR for the Japanese company who are struggling to compete within a number of industries.
It is unclear at this time how many of the 100,000 Xperia Tablet S’s shipped are faulty, however Sony is offering to repair those affected products. That isn’t the greatest move they could make, however, as a replacement unit would surely be favoured by consumers.
Sony have not gone as far as to say when sales will commence for their latest tablet computer. If their reaction to faulty products is anything to go by, however, A LOT must have been affected.
