    Has there been any solution to the wifi issues on the Duo 13?

    I'd like to purchase a new tablet to replace my Asus EP121 but I'm getting awfully discouraged with Sony. Both the Flip 13 and the Duo 13 look extremely interesting but between the fan issue and the wifi issue I don't think I can justify either one. If I was a conspiracy type person I'd say they wanted to convince everyone to buy the Tap 11.

    Similar concerns here. The Duo13 looks great in so many ways but the WiFi issue has really held me back. Reports from Duo13 owners? Improvements or fixes?

    Some people have issues and some don't. I ordered a custom build and have no issues...

    My DUO 13 wifi has very short range, besides that it works similarly well as my other devices. It's not that the WIFI is broken, but you really have to be near the access point/router.

    The WIFI short range problem has not been fixed as of yet after multiple WIFI driver updates... it's more likely a hardware design flaw now.
