American bookstore chain Family Christian is taking a two-year-old Android tablet, silkscreening a new name on it, pre-loading it with a Bible app (27 translations), and — completely disregarding Moses's contribution — selling it as "the world’s first Christian tablet." The device, called the Edifi, was first introduced to the world as the Cydle Multipad M7 back in 2010, and features 8GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, a 7-inch 800 x 480 display, and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread. On top of the aforementioned Bible app, going with the Edifi over the Multipad also scores you Safe Search web browsing and Christian internet radio. If you’re in the market for some Edification, the tablet is selling for $149.99 at Family Christian’s site along with its 300 stores across the US.
