Tablet PCs preloaded with 4 magazines
November 11, 2002
HP and Toshiba are preloading their new Tablet PCs with the digital editions of four magazines: BusinessWeek, Harvard Business Review, Technology Review and PC Magazine, reports Adweek's Technology Marketing. Is this a signal that the market has finally endorsed digital magazines? Or is this a mis-guided effort by magazines to promote themselves on devices that have been designed to read handwriting and anyway cost four to five time as much as normal PCs?
