There are a few things to know about the Android OS ecosystem as it relates to smartphones and tablets (and how it differs fundamentally from Apple's "iOS" and the iPad, in particular.)

*** About Android and Apple ***
Unlike Apple and their all-encompassing network of computers, softwares and iOS-dependent devices, Google's Android operating system is largely an open-source application that developers and hardware manufacturers have a certain amount of freedom to create software and hardware around.

But this is where it gets tricky.

Not all manufacturers have a license to the most current Android OS and even if the most current OS is licensed, there's no guarantee that particular restriction imposed by Google (and there is) would allow that manufacturer to be able to say that "anything" can be done on any of its devices. This is why certain app's can be installed on some devices and not others; on one manufacturer's smartphone, but not its tablet.

*** Budget vs. Better ***
Not all Android devices are the same. A distinction has to made when considering any Android product, especially a tablet.

There are, what I call, "budget" Android tablets and "better" Android tablets.

Typically, the OS version on the budget devices is 2 years behind the current 4.1.2 "Jellybean." In addition, Google limits these devices from downloading many app's from all three (3) of the major Android app stores: Google Play, Amazon Appstore and Getjar.

Then there's, of course, the cheap, plasticy feel of the budget brands.

The line of demarcation is at $200. If you have a budget of $300-350, you'll have enough to buy a halfway decent Android tablet.

The following is a review written by a first time electronic notebook owner and longtime techno-dummy. I have written this after experimenting with the pad's features and much trial and error, mostly error. For reference points, I own two laptops and a Kindle Fire (actually Mrs.Spudman's# and had the opportunity to look at an i-pad for a side by side comparison with the Marquis.

In the box I found the Marquis pad and a charging cord. One end of the cord plugs into the pad; the other end has a USB connection that in turn can be attached to a wall plug for charging. The Marquis may be charged using USB but charges much faster plugged into a wall. In my box there was no documentation of any kind, not even a warranty card; this might just be a packaging fluke. I've since purchased a case and some cleaning pads.

Having had experience with the Kindle, it was easy to figure out how to turn on and unlock the Marquis and figure out how to navigate around the pad. Some internet links and APPS are already installed on the pad. Among the installed links are: face book, Amazon, twitter, yahoo, Google, Picasa, Wikpedia, CNN, NYTimes ,eBay, and BBC. Of course, others can be added.

On the home page are tabs for: kindle, books, browser, calculator, calendar, clock, diagnostics, downoads, email, gallery, gmail, help, iReader, latitude, maps, marquis camera, movie studio, music, navigation, OI file manager, people, places, play store, search, settings. I've used settings, help most frequently as well as the handful of my downloaded apps.

A few specs:
9.7 inch LED-backlit 1024x768 pixel resolution at 132 ppi with Multi-Touch Display

Texas Instruments processor 1.2GHz dual-core DSP, low-power system, 1GB DDR2 Memory

Wi-Fi #802.11 b/g# Bluetooth 2.

It's impossible to review a tablet without comparing it to the iPad or a reader without comparing it to the Kindle, but I'll start with what's good.

The Matsunichi Marquis MP977 does what a tablet should - lets you connect wirelessly, send emails, use Android apps (more on that later), connect to popular sites such as YouTube, Google, Pandora, etc. with ease, use widgets such as navigation, and has a free Amazon Kindle app so you can read books on it.

You'll need a wireless connection to set up and use everything the MP977 has to offer, but once you have a good connection, downloading apps is easy through the Play Store.

Now for the inevitable comparison to the iPad:

Where the MP977 suffers is in screen resolution -- 1024 X 768 with 132 ppi (pixels per square inch) compared to the iPad's 2048 X 1535 with 264 ppi. It's like the difference between watching programming on standard and high definition television. It's not so much that it doesn't look good - honestly, it looks fine once you get used to it -- but that you notice eye strain much sooner. You could easily watch a movie on the tablet, though for reading it doesn't come close to a Kindle. At 1.6 pounds its slightly heavier than an iPad and much heavier than a Kindle, and if you do a lot of reading e-ink is quite a bit easier on the eyes. However, the Kindle app works seamlessly, with the benefit that you get to see the cover art displayed with a large number of books at a time. Pages are turned with either a sweeping motion or a tap in the margins. The touch screen isn't quite as sensitive as the iPad, but you get used to it. The controls aren't quite as intuitive either, but that's also a matter of getting used to how things are done on this tablet, which really isn't very difficult.
