Newspapers – Tribune Developing Tablet

#newspapers #news #tablet #media #print #journalism #tech #ipad #apple —  A major media company is working on creating its own tablet computer.  Tribune Company, owner of newspapers and broadcast outlets, is mounting a challenge to the dominance of the iPad.  The CNN report has this interesting tid bit;

“Tribune aims to offer the tablet for free, or at a highly subsidized price, to people who agree to sign up for extended subscriptions to one of its papers and possibly a wireless-data plan with a partner cellular carrier.”

Is this a sign of things to come out of the newspaper industry?
