Digg has outlined details of how it plans to come up with what it claims to be the perfect replacement for the Google Reader service. Digg is claiming it was already into developing a service that could be seen as something similar to Google Reader, though the search giant’s recent decision to withdraw its Reader service has only provided more impetus to Digg’s efforts. While it admits it amounts to a huge endeavor to build something as huge as Google Reader in so short a time span, it still exuded confidence in being able to come up with the RSS News Reader by the time Google Reader goes offline.
Towards this, it has also revealed how the company is looking at the entire thing, which it claims is focused around four central points. Digg has stated it is working hard to keep it really simple. Another aspect that Digg is emphasizing is putting emphasis on interoperability with various devices, while also ensuring existing Google Reader subscribers are able to switch over to the Digg offering with the minimum of hassle.
As for a launch date, the best that Digg could state is that it hopes to be ready by the time Google pulls the plug on its Reader service. So expect things to be set up and ready by the summer time!
