iPad To Get Top Condé Nast Magazines
According to the New York Times, Condé Nast is planning iPad versions of some of its top-selling magazines, including Wired, GQ, The New Yorker, Glamour, and Vanity Fair.
The article goes on to say that GQ launches in April, followed by Vanity Fair and Wired in June, with the last two being available in the summer.
This isn't a complete surprise: an iPad version of Wired magazine was demoed at TED last month, but it does demonstrate that e-publishers, at least, are starting to embrace the possibilities available to them by publishing to the new device.
While electronic versions of magazines are already available for e-readers like the Kindle and the nook, they lack the ability to reproduce color photos, thereby losing much of what makes magazines, well, magazine-ey. The iPad versions should pose no such problems.
Pricing has yet to be set, though the company says it will be experimenting with a number of different models.
