Sony Xperia Tablet S returns to the shelves

Regular readers might remember the launch and the subsequent recall of the Sony Xperia Tablet S. If that impacted on your tablet buying options, we have good news. It's back.

At the start of October, the Tablet S was pulled from sale as Sony discovered its splash-proof tablet couldn't withstand the odd splash. So if you bought it for browsing by the sea in Ibiza, you might well have had a few problems. Not all tablets were affected, but enough for Sony to stop sales and recall specific models, even though there wasn't any threat to safety.

Now it's back, but in a fast-moving tablet market, Sony might already have missed the boat (if we're continuing with the seaside analogy). Still, if the tablet originally appealed to you, at least you know the newly-relaunched model has been given a serious going over by Sony, so peace of mind comes as a nice bonus.

As well as that, the tablet also offers Android 4.0 for the OS, along with a 9.4-inch WXGA (1280x800) display, an eight-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording, a one-megapixel front-facing camera, 1GB RAM and a 1.3GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor.

Different storage capacities are available with a 16GB Wi-Fi model selling £329, the 3G version yours for £429 and 32GB/64GB Wi-Fi models priced at £379 and £449 respectively. All should be available now.
