New tablet e-editions unveiled for Welsh titles

New e-editions designed to work on tablet computers have been launched by four Welsh newspapers today.

Exact digital replicas of the print editions of the Western Mail, Daily Post, South Wales Echo and Wales on Sunday will now be available on iPad.

The e-editions of the three daily titles will each retail at £7.99 a month, while Wales on Sunday will cost £3.99 a month.

Trinity Mirror executives unveiled the new products at the Senedd in Cardiff today at a launch event sponsored by Positif, Wales’ largest public affairs company.

Alan Edmunds, editor of the Western Mail said: “This is an important development for our readers and advertisers.

“I am sure it will be welcomed by all who care passionately that the big Welsh national issues are covered extensively in the media on all available platforms. It is crucial that we engage our growing digital audience in new ways like this.”

Alison Gow, editor of the North Wales-based Daily Post added: “This is a really exciting development for the Daily Post; it gives readers choice and convenience, and complements what we do in print, on and on mobile brilliantly.”

    Does anyone know if there are plans for a Liverpool Echo digital edition any time soon? I know several ex-pats who would sign up immediately.

    Why are these ones paid for when the Daily Mirror and other regional Trinity Mirror ipad editions like the Birmingham Mail are free? Not exactly a joined up policy is it?
