There are two points worth raising in this article by Peter Kafka of WSJ regarding the Time Inc. Tablet Magazine. First, it looks like the said Tablet Magazine is actually like the rumored Apple Tablet, or at least that’s how I envisioned the Apple Tablet to be.
The other point is the fact that Time’s tablet magazine if indeed it’s not the Apple Tablet, should be what all e-readers should be like. Â Ok, this is to say that I was really impressed by what was just demoed – in terms of features and capabilities. Â In other words, Time Inc’s tablet magazine if it becomes a reality will certainly rock on.If you’ve got three minutes to spare, go watch the video from start to finish and I’m telling you this – you’ll be awed by how cool Time’s tablet magazine is. It’s like watching the future of digital magazine and it will certainly change the way we read these colorful publications.
To give you an idea, in case you don’t have the time to watch the video – the Time Tablet Magazine will have tons of features including – touchscreen display, multi-finger zooming-in and zooming-out of pages, Internet connectivity, video playback embedded on the digital magazine and some other nice touch that will make you think about the iPhone or iPod Touch.
The bad news is – it’s still uncertain as to when this tablet magazine will come up. Either the Applet Â Tablet comes out first or Time beats Apple into it. Â Sure thing is – both Apple and Time Inc. don’t have time on their side.
