It’s incredible to think that it’s only been four years since the iPad tablet platform has been in use by the world. It sounds cliche, but many people wouldn’t know what they’d do without their tablet.
D.B. Hebbard from Talking New Media has a great overview of the iPad over the past four years. Hebbard writes, “The iPad wasn’t the first tablet, of course, but it certainly was the first tablet to gain a foothold in the market. In fact, that was the first question every had – would the iPad reach enough buyers to make creating digital publications for it worthwhile. Some bet that the effort would be worthwhile and launched apps immediately.”
Hebbard also talks about the publishers that were early to the iPad platform. Like the New York Times, Popular Science and Zinio, with its digital newsstand app.
