Newspaper publishers around the globe understand their traditional revenue sources will not return to the levels they enjoyed in years past, and they are making the development of new products and new channels their top priorities for more profit, the second annual World News Future & Change Study concludes.

Continual transformation and change is a way of life in the media world, not a one-time process, they acknowledge in the study, conducted by the Shaping the Future of the Newspaper project, of the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers' (WAN-IFRA), in partnership with the Norwegian School of Management (BI) and the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) in the United Kingdom.

"PC market growth will be impacted by devices that enable better on-the-go content consumption such as media tablets and next-generation smartphones," said Gartner Research analyst Raphael Vasquez, Agence France-Presse reported.

Around 10,000-12,000 devices were meant to be officially available for sale from November 9 onwards, but verified figures were not available. According to Sostav.ru, more iPads with the 3G function were predicted to be delivered to the country's retailers before the end of the year, said Evgenii Butman, head of the ECS Group (Russia's Apple distributor).

An anonymous source familiar with the electronics industry said that the next wave of iPad devices to be imported into Russia will be larger in number because of the "initial success" of the sales, Kommersant informed. However, the exact number was not known, Lenta.ru stated.

Not content to leave success to chance, 13 New York Times staffers have spent almost four years analysing the myriad of ways the newspaper might better use new media to connect with existing and potential readers, Editor & Publisher reported yesterday.

The NYT's research and development team is organised into three main categories: core technology development, emerging platforms, and analytics and audience generation.

The unorthodox application of a research and development component to the world of publishing comes even as science laboratories have begun outsourcing or pooling such functions because of their perceived inefficiencies.
