Hearst plans new device for mobile news delivery

In an effort to find a way to keep people reading its newspapers and magazines, Hearst is planning to unveil a wireless electronic reader similar to Amazon.com’s Kindle, according to InformationWeek.com. While there is no guarantee such a device would succeed, it

has its best chance of striking a chord with the majority of consumers if it includes its e-reader at no additional cost with a multiyear subscription to the publisher’s magazines and newspapers… To make the device even more attractive, it should have a Web browser to access other content and include additional capabilities, such as the ability to share content with others over the Web.
