Official Christian Tablet Should Really Be Called Crap Android Tablet

By Leslie Horn on at

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 £100-odd, you can get the holiest slate on the market (save for the Good Book). But really, this is just a seven inch piece of junk.

Without the godly branding, it's the Cydle M7, a garbage gadget made by a company you've never heard of. Although maybe the good lord is really into a 2010 POS running Android 2.3. We have no way of knowing. At least the unblessed version is £15 cheaper. If you're looking for a deal, you're really really better off going with the HTC Flyer or Google's soon-to-be-released Nexus 7, or even an iPad and downloading one of the dozens of iOS or Android Bible apps out there. But of course, those aren't officially branded as holy. [Family Christian via Fox News via The Verge]
