Gateway CX200 Tablet PC
Gateway is the latest to join Sony's Global Replacement Program

It seems as though no company (with the exception of Hewlett-Packard) is immune to Sony battery recalls. Yesterday, Gateway announced that it was recalling 35,000 batteries used in the following notebooks: CX200, CX210, E100M, M250, M255, M280, M285, M465, M685, MP8708, NX260, NX510, NX560, NX860, NX100, MX1025, MX6918b and MX1020j.

The batteries have been sold in Gateway notebooks since September of 2005 and were available through direct and professional channels. Since Gateway has joined the Sony Global Replacement Program, the company will have no direct costs as a result of the recall and customers of course will get free battery replacements.

With this latest announcement, the battery recall total now approaches the 10 million mark. A for Sony's part in the whole matter, the company has recently stated that it is sorry for the whole ordeal.

I work for a school district, we are a Gateway district, and this morning, I had to run around and pull over 100 of these batteries to be returned. Yay.
