Sony products are pretty good, for me though ive moved away from their tv's PS3, and phones for Samsung tv's Microsoft XBOX and the iphone. For me there is just other products out there that are more to my needs.

Not slating Sony as there stuff isnt bad, its ust not out there enough to reach a bigger audience, unfortunately its declining in several market sectors.

I think Sony should stop making consumer products.they are getting beaten in every segment.Samsung is really killing Sony.I think it's too late for Sony.

Wrong shape and wrong size for that LOL LOL and LOL. It shouldn't even have a cam and then it could be sold cheaper.
Nice move sony! That's why I trust you. Taking care of problems before they do any real harm.

Everybody is jumping on this store but it is not really a big deal. The tablets with the issue were only released in Japan not worldwide. Here is a link to the official Sony news release through Google translator.

The issue only involves 3 specific models of the tablet that are all limited to Japan.

Bought mine in the US, and now I'm in the Philippines. Where do I go? The tablet isn't even released here yet...

xperia, 05 Oct 2012why.. hmmm i'll just buy the new sammy's note IIBut note II is not a tablet. Get the Note 10.1, thats what we will do, for xmas. Only the LED flash is worth the higher price of the 10.1 over the Xperia S tablet, so its like the huge advantage of the S-pen comes free of charge.

Yes it does not matter, noone is gonna buy this anyway. I like Sony and have many Sony products, but this tablet is useless. Whats the point of making an allweather tablet and then not put a LED flash on it?

For xmas we will buy Galaxy Note 10.1, will be our first samsung product ever, wish we could get Sony but we are not willing to skimp on the specs, and asking for an LED FLash is not too much to ask.

Thats +1 consumer moving from Sony to Samsung. Its not like we have a choice, Sony always hold back on something, they do not make as complete products as Samsung does, Samsung is in tune with the consumers, Sony is not.

Ohh, I really love Sony. Clear example that they care about their customers. The strange thing is that they can produce so many Xperia Tablet S before they discover the problem.

Too bad Apple doe not take notes from companies like Sony. Apple knew about their issue way before launch and did nothing, Sony is recalling shipped tablets and exchanging sold ones. Now that's quality
