Android Newspaper

These days, the newspaper industry is having a tough time figuring out just how to battle technology and the resources it offers individuals for getting their news. Some smaller newspapers have simply shut down shop while others have fought back by embracing it.

The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, which are both owned by the Philadelphia Media Network, are embracing it. While the finer details have yet to be worked out, like pricing and what tablet -- both will soon be offering up discounted Android tablets loaded with digital subscriptions to the content. If you can't beat em, might as well join them.

The number of people that read their news on tablets will soon outnumber people that read news on traditional papers. It's progress, and news companies need to act fast to stay in the race.

This is one approach. If the pricing models are good and the tablets on offer are good, we might see an explosion of subscription based subsidized tablet devices.
