You can expect to get tabbed browsing, of course, but Chrome for Android also has incognito. There's also the ability to sync your open tabs with your desktop to read later and the ability to switch tabs "the way you would fan a deck of cards."
That's changing, now that Sony is ready to push out Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to the dual screen Sony Tablet P. As with the Tablet S, the update will be pushed out automatically via the software update feature.
Personally, one of the highlights is the inclusion of a native screenshot capture. It used to be that you had to root the Sony Tablet S to get this feature, but now it's built-in; just press the power and reduce volume buttons at the same time.

The latest info suggests that the company is thinking about something big.

Samsung had to think big when planning the next in their “S” series line of Android smartphones to keep up with the rich traditions already established by the Galaxy S, S II and the Galaxy Note.

It will only work on devices which run Ice Cream Sandwich though for now and will not be streaming music from your Google Music account.
