Sony halts sales of the Xperia Tablet S over lack of ‘water-resistance’, will fix already purchased units

The Xperia Tablet S launched only a month ago, but Sony has already halted sales. The tablet itself is supposed to be water resistant, but they found gaps between the screen and the case that would actually make the tabs susceptible to water damage. So far, there are about 100,000 units in the wild, but Sony said they will fix any and all of the tablets sold. As to when sales will start up again, nothing was announced.
