Apple’s Tablet might not have emerged from the Cupertino’s secret labs yet but it seems magazine publishers are taking the prospect very seriously. Conde Nast, publishers of Wired and Vogue, have already developed a concept for bringing its magazines to the Apple Tablet.
The video demonstration (above) was shown by Conde Nast at it’s Wired Store event in New York. The short clip shows the potential for an Apple Tablet-style version of the publisher’s tech mag Wired.
In the clip, you’ll see someone flipping through pages, interacting with graphs and graphics and reading text laid out just how it appears in traditional magazines. As with the iPhone, the Wired Apple Tablet concept allows you to change page orientation by flipping the screen.
It all looks fantastic, and while we’ve a feeling it’ll hammer the tablet’s battery life if it ever makes it to store shelves, it’s a sure sign publishers are gearing up for a new type of tablet device. What’s more, if tales of the New York Times discussing the Tablet with Apple turn out to be true, this is exactly how we’d love to see magazines presented on it.
