That’s what an article in Reuters says about subscriptions on the ipad.

“We do expect in 2012 at some point to be able to have more than a million on e-subscriptions,” Hearst Magazine President David Carey said.

The division now has about 400,000 digital subscribers to Cosmopolitan, Esquire and its other titles.

Carey gave the projection during the Reuters Global Media Summit just as Hearst rival Time Inc announced a new chief executive to replace Jack Griffin, who was ousted in February after five months on the job.

Hearst’s digital strategy differs from its competitors in that it charges for digital subscriptions whether or not a person is a print subscriber to one of its magazines.
