Reading habits are changing rapidly and yet the tablet marketplace is still in its infancy, poised for explosive growth with the second generation iPad and the introduction of more Android tablets.  At the same time, Android is also driving the acceleration of high-resolution smartphone sales worldwide. Prices are decreasing and it is expected that a robust marketplace is to develop over the next five years. [Sources: eWeek, ComputerWorld].  As Morgan Stanley Research put it, more than 50% of large enterprises expect to purchase tablets for employees over the next year.  Those employees are all consumers and at the end of the day it is all about the customer experience and integrating that into their lifestyle of choice.

According to Maurice Edelson, EVP and member of Time Inc.’s interim management committee, in the coming year there will clearly be many more consumers using tablets, accelerating demand for content.  Having TIME’s entire portfolio available on tablets, which includes People, will create a significant new digital reach.

We could not agree more. Keep your eyes on Next Issue in coming weeks and months.  We hope you will be as excited as we are about what is coming next!
