Sony is making the Tablet S a little sweeter of a proposition today by cutting the price of the Honeycomb tablet by $100. Effective immediately, you'll be able to pick up the 16GB version for $399.99, or the 32GB model for $499.99. Additionally, the company is throwing in five free PlayStation Classic game downloads, 180 days of its basic Music Unlimited service (which is a lot like Pandora), and an $8 voucher for movie rentals along with five free rentals (presumably hand-picked) from the company's Video Unlimited service.

Is this enough to make you drop cash on Sony's contender in the Android tablet game? We weren't thrilled with the device when we tested it back in August, and with CES just around the corner, it might be best to take a wait-and-see approach here. Still, if you've been on the fence about this tablet in particular, you probably just got the push you needed.
