The company pulled the slate from the market in early October after discovering a build defect that allowed moisture to seep in between its screen and casing.
Sony has now confirmed on its Japanese website that the product will gradually return to stores starting in "mid-November". A free inspection and repairs service remains in operation for users affected by the fault.
Sony had already distributed around 100,000 Xperia S tablets in Europe, the US and Japan when the flaw was detected, but honoured its agreement to correct this issue for existing customers.
Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the tablet is powered by a speedy NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and is backed by an extensive media library courtesy of the Sony Entertainment Network.
The Sony Xperia Tablet S retailed in the UK from £329, with the price tag climbing for models with higher memory.
