Conde Nast has announced that it will bring several of its publications to the upcoming Apple tablet device. This will expand Conde Nast's Apple presence, following the launch of its publications to the iPhone last year.
One of the many devices the iPad wants to overthrow is Amazon's Kindle. With its compact design and over-the-air data connection, it certainly could be used as a competent e-reader device. It will have a lot of competition, though, as the Kindle has a veritable fountain of books available on its digital store.
Apple plans to release and expand its "books" section of iTunes as soon as the iPad hits stores next month, and it is quickly gaining content partners. The latest, Conde Nast, will make iPad versions of GQ, Glamour, The New Yorker, and Vanity Fair.
GQ on the iPhone alone reached 15,000 copies in January, according to the New York Times.
Conde Nast says that if the initial slate of publications proves successful on the iPad, it will launch more of its magazines later on.
