News Corp plans news apps exclusively for tablets
This new venture would have text, images, sound and video exclusively designed to meet iTunes app format. The content won't either be a newspaper or a news website. This is not going to be based on any of the existing newspapers of News Corp.
News Corp, the Rupert Murdoch-led media conglomerate, is planning to go for a new news unit which will be dedicated to creating content for the tablet devices like iPad.

The Apple iPad has already sold 3.27 millin units in the first quarter of its launch and many more big names are making plans to jump into the tablet market. Recently, RIM as well as Microsoft and HP had reportedly made plans to come into tablet market.

Seeing a good market for digital news, News Corp is considering to design an exclusive news play that is designated to the tablet devices. They have said that the news apps will be on a subscription basis.

This new venture would have text, images, sound and video exclusively designed to meet iTunes app format. The content won’t either be a newspaper or a news website. This is not going to be based on any of the existing newspapers of News Corp.

If reports are to be true and if the company moves forward with this project, news Corp may announce the initiative as soon as the next month.

With the good earnings by providing content via subscription to the iPad owners, News Corp has already set an example. This has made the market open where content like news are making it big as it is available on the go and at a lower price than the physical copies.
