Matsunichi MarquisPad to Touch Down in the U.S. for $249, Bringing ICS to the Party
The MarquisPad boasts a 9.7-inch display with a 1024x768 resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 2GB of internal memory, microSD card slot with a 2GB card pre-installed, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, front-facing camera, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a 4000 mAh battery.
Out-of-the-box storage is a little light and there's no rear-facing camera. It's also curious that Wireless-N isn't supported, but one thing we can't argue with is the price tag.
Matsunichi is also planning a higher end version of its MarquisPad -- MP979 -- with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of internal storage, Wireless-N support, and a beefier 6000 mAh battery. Pricing for the MP970 is unknown at this time.
