Fairfax media, the owner of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age newspapers has today taken it’s online presence further, by launching a mobile application to view it’s news content via Apple’s very popular iPad.
The media conglomorate has said the application will provide users a new way of reading news, and help the company pay for it’s reporting expenses.
In a changing digital world, people are heading online more than ever to keep abreast of news and current affairs, and make informed purchasing decisions, or buy direct from an online store to enjoy cost savings. Fairfax has embraced this change by now entering this space, despite possibly being a little late off the mark.
The Fairfax online app will be free during the initial 6 month launch period, but will move to a paid subsrciption of $8.99 per month from December this year, possibly signalling a move for it’s remaining online presence to move online, like News Corp’s publishing houses, however Jake Mathews, Chief Executive at Fairfax seems to deny that the website will move to a fully-paid subscription model.
The Fairfax application for Apple iPad is available today from the Apple App store, with an Android application coming soon.

Customers of ONE may have noticed recently that we’ve been offering Android Mobile Phones through our handset store.
The first question most customers ask is “What is Android?“, so this article helps explain what Android is, and why it’s so good.
Android is essentially the software that runs many of today’s new smart phones, and is in use by some of the best mobile phone makers in the world, including LG, HTC, Samsung, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and more.
Android is made by Google, and it’s integration with Google’s products and services is the best available.
Android has all of the usual things you would expect of your modern smart phone, including access to 3G Data networks, web browsing capabilities, most phones have touch screeens and access to WiFi networks to save on data costs, and of course you can make and receive calls and SMS messages.
The Google search feature operated by your own voice is truly amazing. Just speak the word, destination or item you’re looking for into your phone, and it will return results from Google. This is great if you’re travelling and looking for some entertainment, or a restaurant for example, similarly the Google Maps and Navigation act as your SatNav and are great when you’re exploring new places, or just trying to find your destination
Gmail integration is amazing for business users, or anyone who frequently uses, and likes access to their email on the go.
Aside from all the Great Google based features, you have access to Social networking, including Facebook, twitter and more, with all of your unified messaging in one place, and there are loads of great free and paid applications available in the Android market place.
Android is one of the fastest growing mobile platforms, overtaking iPhone’s IOS, and even Nokia have bowed out of the operating system game, conceding it’s Symbian operating system will not be the mobile phone platform of the future, instead entering a partnership with Microsoft to deliver Windows based mobile phones.
