Apple Talking to Australian Media Companies About Tablet?
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Apple has approached several Australian media companies about offering their content on the company's much-rumored tablet computer. Understandably, none of the companies have been willing to speak about the device on the record, offering few details about the substance of the conversations.
Apple has sent specifications of the device to Australian media companies in an effort to sound out whether they would be interested in delivering their content to the tablet. None would speak about the device on the record.
The report mirrors rumors late last month indicating that Apple had similarly approached The New York Times about the new device and its plans to redefine print media with it. Just yesterday, comments from New York Times executive editor Bill Keller surfaced that suggested he may in fact have some inside knowledge of the device.
