With the price of tablets going down, I bet we’ll start seeing more specialty versions showing up. Amazon’s makes it easy to buy from Amazon. Imagine a Coke-sponsored one which starts up with a Coke ad and their website. Or one from Ford that automatically connects to your Ford car. Or one from Astroglide lube and Trojan with links to pron sites. And so on.
Steve Jobs worshippers need not apply. But if you’re looking to get in God’s good graces, or you’re simply in the market for a family-friendly tablet, you may want to check out Family Christian’s Edifi. Billed as the world’s first Christian tablet, its genesis came with the inevitable intersection of technology and religion, according to Brian Honorable, a technology supervisor at Family Christian, the group that sells the tablet.
Nor is it technically the first religious tablet. That honor, of course, goes to Moses and the Jews.
