The Xperia tablet is defective

Sony has halted sales of its Xperia tablet PC because it's susceptible to water damage.


A month after its launch, Sony has halted sales of its Xperia tablet PCs after discovering some gaps between the screen and the case that make the machines susceptible to water damage.

The Xperia tablet was released on September 7 in the US, followed by Japan, Europe and elsewhere and Sony has sold around 100,000 units at the moment.
