ViewPad 7e Hopes to Challenge Amazon Fire

With the Amazon Fire dominating the press in the affordable tablet department, you knew it was only a matter of time before someone else came along and made a splash.  That splash has now been made by none other than Viewsonic and their ViewPad 7e.  It's looking more and more like the tablet market is going to split into a couple of segments with the categories being 'high end' and 'low end'.  Now that doesn't mean quality, it means cost.  Some folks are willing to shell out big dollars for all the bells & whistles while some are content to get good performance while saving a few dollars & not having every feature under the sun.
With the second category clearly in its sights, take a look at what the ViewSonic ViewPad 7e has to offer.  The device is a 7" tablet running Android 2.3 on a 1Ghz processor.  It has 4GB of internal storage and is expandable up to 32GB.
The device is clearly going after the Kindle Fire and personally I think competition is a good thing.  ViewSonic is a stable company that's been around for a while now.  They have good  products I I feel that both Amazon and ViewSonic have done a good job of bring devices to the market that, while not going head to head with Apple, will give consumers viable alternatives.
Here are all the details:
