Sony Mobiles which had halted the production of its Xperia S tablet after a major manufacturing fault was discovered in the tablet; earlier this month will not launch it in India.
Kenichiro Hibi, managing director, Sony India said to The Mobile Indian, “We know that there is some issue with Xperia S Tablet and due to that we have decided not to launch it in India.”
The water resistant, Xperia S, tablet was rendered prone to internal damage from water as during manufacturing a gap has been left between the display and the case of the tablet.
The problem with the tablet, which is supposed to be water resistant, is the result of a manufacturing flaw at the Chinese plant where it is fabricated, said Sony spokeswoman Noriko Shoji had earlier said.
Sony Xperia Tablet S is the iteration of the original Sony Tablet S that was released last year. Sony has revised the design of the Tablet S and adopted a new slimmer profile for the Xperia Tablet S. The tablet packs a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 mobile processor with GeForce Graphics chip. The Xperia Tablet S is also PlayStation certified, allowing users to enjoy some dedicated PlayStation mobile games from the PlayStation Store.
