The internet is all a-buzz with news of the world’s first Christian tablet, offered by Family Christian, called, Edifi.
“We wanted to be able to offer our customers the ability to use our Holy Bible application, which has 27 different English translations of the Bible,” Brian Honorable, Family Christian spokesperson told FoxNews.com in an interview.
“It goes along with our mission: trying to get people closer to God … through a tablet.”
In case YouVersion’s 100+ Bible versions weren’t good enough–available on any mobile or computing device for free–and you have an extra $150 to shell out, Edifi, might be for you.
The Android-based tablet is manufactured by South Korean firm Cydle, and sports a resistive touch screen (480×800 resolution), 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of expandable storage. If it sounds like the Kindle Fire, it should: Honorable said the company has Amazon squarely in its sights.
“We basically stacked it up to [Amazon’s] Kindle Fire,” Honorable said. “Only theirs is $199.99. Ours is $149.99. The battery is actually stronger than everybody else out there on the market.” – These quotes were all from Fox News as there is no additional info available on Family Christian’s website.
Mixed reviews can be read on Family Christian’s site here along with specifications on the device itself. Edifi is more of an eReader than a true tablet, hence the affordable price.
