Digital Christmas will boost content sales
As for 2012 I have personally subscribed to six news services - Oh yes, I'm a news junkie - three international (The Guardian, Times+ and The New York Times), one Nordic (Svenska Dagbladet's "Insikt" monthly supplement) and three Finnish newspapers in digital format only. I still read one or two newspapers mainly in print, as the tablet versions are mere pdf versions of the printed paper. Also other international news services are readily available as convenient apps on the iPad, like FT, Mashable and NYT. My magazine subscriptions are mainly in digital format including National Geographic Magazine, Sköna Hem and Wired available on the iPad Newsstand. I subscribe to The Economist in print + digital format including mobile and tablet versions. Very handy and convenient, as a I can read these when I'm on the move. Print is still relevant, but as it arrives later by snail mail I have read most articles on the iPad already.
It will be an exciting year to follow as far as the news industry and media related business concepts are concerned. Looking forward to more news on the topic.
Happy New Year everyone!
