The much-anticipated release of the new Apple iPad, basically a supersized iPod Touch, could have implications at the Missouri School of Journalism. KBIA's Lauren Hasler talked to Roger Fidler of the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute about his reaction to Apple's latest release.
Roger Fidler is the program director for digital publishing with RJI. He has been studying portable electronic reading devices since 1981. Fidler says the new iPad is of interest to RJI because it could provide a new platform for the delivery of digital editions of newspapers.
"The apps are pretty exciting, and the things that we can do with those apps give us, I think, greater opportunity to do some new things. We're going to try to figure that out over the next few months."
