Sony XPERIA Tablet S reviewed at SlashGear

There certainly isn't any lack of Android tablets to pick from, and now Sony has thrown another one onto the ever-growing pile. We don't hear as much from Sony as we do from other manufacturers in the Android space, but when we do, there's a pretty good chance that Sony has implemented some strange feature to make its products stand out from the rest. That's no different with Sony's latest tablet, the XPERIA Tablet S, with Chris Burns recently posting his review of the device over at SlashGear. You'll have to head over there to get the full opinion, but we'll tackle some of the big points here.

Sony Xperia Tablet S sales to resume in November

Recently, Sony was forced to pull sales of the Xperia Tablet S because of a leak in the waterproof seal.

Well starting in the middle portion of next month, Sony is going to resume sales of the Xperia Tablet S, with the leak problem taken care of.

Normally when we talk about teardowns here on Android Community, they're conducted by a third party organization and are meant to give us not only a better idea of the hardware inside, but also the price of all the parts included in the device. That isn't the case with this teardown of the Xperia Tablet S, as Sony has decided to conduct the teardown itself. As a result, the company won't be telling us the combined price of all of the components, but we still get a close look at the tablet's innards nonetheless.
