Not so water resistant after all

Sony has run into a significant issue with its water-resistant Xperia Tablet that went on sale about a month ago. The problem is that the tablet has a manufacturing defect that makes it susceptible to water damage. Sony reports that it has discovered a manufacturing flaw in its tablet that causes a gap between the tablet's display and the case of the tablet. 
 
The gap is significant enough to allow water to get inside the tablet that was marketed as being water resistant. Sony says the manufacturing defect originated at the Chinese plant where the tablet is assembled. Until the manufacturing defect can be corrected, Sony has pulled the tablet off the market.
 
The electronics retailer isn't offering any estimates on when the tablet will return to the market. Sony notes that it has shipped around 100,000 of the devices so far and promises to fix any tablets sold. Sony also notes that the cost of the recall and repairs won't have a significant impact on earnings.
 
The tablet surfaced in leaked slides in early August and runs the Android operating system. The tablet is offered in three different storage capacities with pricing ranging from $400 up to $600.

Sony has offered no details for owners of the tablet on what to do to get their device repaired at this time.
