Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and the Sony Tablet S are two similar tablets that could be on many people's Black Friday shopping lists, so we lined them up to get a better idea of what separates them. Besides being a couple inches bigger than the Tab 7.0 Plus, the Sony Tablet S is shaped a bit different than most tablets. It features a wedge shape that is supposed to fit better in your hand, thus making it easier to hold for longer periods.
Both devices run the Android system with the Tablet S having a bit better resolution on its 9.4-inch screen. Additionally, both tablets are Wi-Fi only models, so you don't have to worry about any more data plans. Both have front and back cameras, 16 gigabytes of on board storage and very thin profiles. Since the Tablet S is bigger, it's also a bit heavier.
Features wise, the Tablet S is a PlayStation Certified device that comes with classic PlayStation games Crash Bandicoot and Pinball Heroes pre-loaded. From there you can download classic PlayStation (the first one) and PSP games titles online. Tablet S can also function as a universal remote control for your stereo system or HDTV.
Obviously, the Tab 7.0 Plus is a bit smaller, so it should be a little bit more portable. But it also features the Samsung TouchWiz interface that allows for a more customizable homescreen and a feature called Mini Apps. For commonly used features like Calender, Message and Music, you can store them in a way that lets you access them as a pop-up that runs over whatever other full screen applications you have running. As with most high-tech items, it comes down to price and what you plan to do with it. Tablet 7.0 Plus is $400 on Amazon and Tablet S is $500.
