I have the Motorola Xoom, a 10.1" Android tablet, which is unarguably a tablet. When I first got it, there wasn't a tablet version of the app yet so I bought the phone version for my tablet. It scaled fine and worked great. When they came out with the tablet version, I bought it, but after playing with it for a few minutes I returned it. Even on my tablet I much prefer the phone version of the app. Your mileage may vary, but here are my reasons. 1) I mostly use SlingPlayer on my tablet, but I occasionally want to use it on my phone so I'd need to own the phone version anyway. 2) The tablet remote looks like my actual remote, but functionality-wise I prefer the simple buttons around the edge of the screen in the phone version because they are easier to find and hit, they don't require scrolling, and they obscure less of the screen. 3) I have my SlingBox connected to a TiVo and even the lowest quality setting on the tablet version had so much more lag than the phone version that fast forwarding through commercials was basically impossible.
