WSJ iPad

On April 3rd comes the arrival of the iPad, and with it the hopes that the print industry can be revolutionized. The Wall Street Journal is banking on the device, as leaked pricing from sources close to the paper shows a $17.99 monthly subscription fee for the newspaper.

Magazines are also prepping iPad versions of their publications, including Esquire, who will include video content with their digital issue for $2.99 (two dollars cheaper than the print version), and Men’s Health, which matches the newsstand price at $4.99.Personally, I’m hoping for a big success for both newspapers and magazines on the device, but whether that happens remains to be seen.
