Cydle Multipad M7 Now Called ‘Edifi’, Labeled As First ‘Christian’ Tablet

The Family Christian bookstore chain is trying something new by marketing a tablet to a specific group of individuals.  They are taking the Cydle Multipad M7 tablet, renaming it to Edifi, and marketing it as the world’s first ‘Christian’ tablet.

I’m guessing the Edifi will have a difficult time selling as most people will know its not an iDevice or a current Android device.  In fact, the Edifi sports 8GB storage, Android 2.3 Gingerbread(its been a while since I’ve posted that in an article), 512MB of RAM, and an antiquated 7″ 800×480 display.  The device will ship with a few apps geared for Believers including a Safe Search browser, YouVersion Bible application with 27 translations, and an application to listen to Christian Internet radio.  Take a look at the video below introducing you to the Edifi:

The Edifi will sell for  $149.99 and is available via the Family Christian website and at any of their 300 stores.

I have strong believes about my faith, but I’m not sure why I would purchase a “Christian” tablet over another tablet such as the Nexus 7.  Tell us your thoughts in the comments below
