E-publishing solutions: e-future is here
These days with proliferation and even ubiquity of mobile gadgets and technologies print publications are losing ground to digital media. Tablets take the leadership among platforms for information consumption.
Recent research by Online Publishes Association (OPA) shows that tablets are the most preferred device for information consumption in comparison to mobile phones, PCs, eReaders and even traditional magazines and newspapers.
Device preference for information consumption (% of tablet users, see figure)
Tablets take over the market as the most preferred information consumption devices and people seem to take to the concept. Experts already predict tablet sales rising immensely from 56 million back in 2011 up to 375 million in 2016. Given that above 50% of the devices will be retired in 3 years of purchase, the forecasts go that people will be using 760 million of portable gadgets worldwide by 2016. Even if just one third of these users will be reading your e-magazine, you’ll reach audience exceeding 250 million people.
With digital media solutions you get high-quality digital content presented in adaptive design and compatible with a variety of platforms and covering the majority of users.
