According to Reuters, News Corp, are going to be launching tablet specific versions of the publications for the Apple iPad and other tablet devices, so we could see publications like the New York Times and other coming to the iPad and tablets.
Steve Jobs originally said that the iPad would be the future of newspapers and publications, and it seems that News Corp also thinks so.
“The tablet in general, it lends itself to a type of journalism that is really new,” Murdoch said, highlighting the way print looks on tablets and the multi-touch screens that encourage interaction from readers.
Whether News Corp will be able to make a success of tablet publications remains to be seen, they have already put a number of their UK publications behind a pay wall, like the Times and the Sunday Times, and have seen their online reading numbers drop dramatically.
Would you paid for a daily newspaper on your iPad, or would you read one of the many free online publications?
