Some websites are already revamping homepages to be compatible with the soon to be released Apple iPad, which won’t support Flash.
The WSJ, NYT, and NPR will feature iPad friendly homepages (which will not rely on Flash) and are developing iPad Apps.
Subscribers to the iPad version of the WSJ can expect to pay $17.99 per month. This translates to about $215 a year. Compare this to the print and online edition which costs users about $140 a year.
It seems the iPad might take the world by storm. Many consumers have placed reservations on the iPad and plan to pick it up from the Apple store on April 3rd.
The iPad has the potential to transform the news media industry by creating a totally new venue through which consumers receive their news.
