With Apple and Adobe having conflicting interest, it seems the release of content on iPad by Conde Nast would be possible once there is a resolution between the two. With Apple already having released its iPad tablet PC, publishers are eagerly intending to load their content on it. Also, Conde Nast is willing to supply its content for Apple iPad but nothing has been announced yet. The plan is to provide the Wired mag on the iPad in the beginning and experience with variety of prices, Ads along with ways to digitize the publication at the same time.
Conde Nast has been putting considerable time and efforts to create a version of Wired, which is able to operate on Apple iPAD. Conde Nast released an innovative version of the Wired publication device during fall of 2009 and also gave a demo in front of a small industry crowd before the launch of Apple iPad in Jan. Again in Feb, another similar demo was given at TED meet.
Unfortunately Conde Nast applications support Adobe Flash instead of iPad and hence it is unable to launch the content until the issues between Apple and Adobe is over. Once this settles down, Conde Nast plans to provide Wired on iPad along with other publications too. Another application, which can be accessed through iPhone is the GQ mag.
Conde Nast will continue its research and development activities by end of October2010 to have better options of its distribution models.
