The first Apple iPad tablet computers are shipping next week on April 3rd.
As exciting as the Apple iPad is, it is still an unproven product. Tablets in general failed so far. Still, magazine publishers and also advertisers see a bright future on the Apple iPad.
The Wall Street Journal (subscription) reports that for instance Time Magazine has apparently already signed advertisers for its first eight iPad issues.
Unilever, Toyota Motor, Fidelity Investments have supposedly paid about $200,000 for a single ad spot in each of the first Times Magazine iPad issues.
The iPad prototype ads combine all the bells and whistles including video, 3D and social networking integration. Advertisers seem to assume that iPad users will more likely to interact with ads as they are now on the web. Count me out, I am already totally iPad ad blind.
