Xperia Tablet S gets maintenance update that fixes VPN bug issues

Sony Xperia Tablet S sales to resume from mid-November

The Sony Xperia Tablet S is rolling out a new firmware update that addresses issues with its VPN connectivity. So far this slate has had a multitude of problems since it launched a few weeks ago. Sales of the tablet had to be stopped after discovering gaps between the screen and the case that could make the device susceptible to water damage, which is horrible news for a device that’s supposed to be waterproof.

Anyhoo, the new update is being received by users over-the-air, and it’ll bring a patch that will fix the buggy connectivity on the VPN. A VPN is used for those who want to hook up to their corporate network at work. Sony hasn’t announced when folks should expect the Tablet S to hit store shelves again, but our guess is it’ll be soon once the new water-resistant capabilities are added. If Sony wants to get in on the holiday rush, they’ll have to resurrect this failed product.

If you’re an antsy Xperia Tablet S owner who doesn’t want to wait for the OTA, you can try accessing the update by heading to Settings > About tablet > Software updates.

Let us know if you received the update okay.
