Even Publishers Want More Tablets

It’s not just consumers such as myself who wants a viable alternative to the iPad to avoid the Apple lock-in, publishers want strong competition to give them options to Apple’s our-way-or-the-highway approach:

In addition to limiting magazine sales to single issues, Apple has declined to share consumer data, meaning the Hearsts, Condé Nasts and Time Incs. of the publishing world know nothing about the people who are buying their digital magazines.

While they are far from writing off the iPad, publishers are eagerly awaiting the development of new tablet technologies from Google, BlackBerry and others that could at least give them some leverage.
