The Economist has been on the Kindle for ages. I subscribed for quite a while and the magazine worked very well on the Kindle. I didn’t feel that I lost anything when I went from print to Kindle edition. Now it is coming for the iPad/iPhone. The full details will be announced on Friday.
Here’s what their website has to say:
We are delighted to announce that we will launch The Economist on iPhone and iPad on Friday, November 19th
