Information consumption is one of the primary reasons for going with an advanced phone over a simpler option.
Traditional media has been slow to get into the online game. That is not to say they don’t have an online presence, but with some considering putting their content behind paywalls and such, it is clear things cannot continue as they are.
Rupert Murdoch has often said that he does not approve of free news content online, and has tried to put his papers inside a pay wall, which has been less than successful. Now, he says that his company, News Corp. will produce a national newspaper distributed exclusively on mobile devices. It would feature short, snappy, easily digestible items aimed at a general readership.
It would have its own dedicated reporting staff, but would also draw from other News Corp properties and run out of the New York Post offices.
