World's First Christian Tablet Is Not Worthy

Pandering alert! A bookstore chain called Family Christian has taken a crappy Android tablet, slapped a new logo on it, and rebranded it as the Edifi — the world’s first Christian tablet!

And what makes it a Christian tablet? That would be 27 translations of the Bible, Christian internet radio, and safe search (no porn allowed). For $US149, you can get the holiest slate on the market (save for the Good Book). But really, this is just a 7-inch piece of junk running Android 2.3.

There’s a non-religious version for $US20 less, called the Cydle M7. But if you’re looking for a deal, you’re really better off going with Amazon’s Kindle Fire or Google’s Nexus 7, or just get an iPad and download one of the many Bible apps out there. But, of course, those aren’t officially branded as holy. [Family Christian via Fox News via The Verge]
