WSJ Mobile on iPhone

Just in case you missed it earlier this week, Rupert Murdoch – the chairman and CEO of the Wall Street Journal’s parent company – has confirmed that the WSJ will be coming to the iPad. He even revealed that they’ve got hold of a real live iPad to work with.

Mr. Murdoch said the Journal planned to be on Apple Inc.’s iPad tablet computer. "In fact, we’ve been allowed to work on one, and it’s under padlock and key. The key is turned by Apple every night," he said in response to a question. "But we will be on that with The Wall Street Journal."

It’s no great shock to learn the WSJ is coming to the iPad, as lots of top newspaper and magazine brands have been expressing their enthusiasm for, and detailing their plans for, the new medium.  I’m personally not excited by this news.  I rarely read financial press and when I do prefer the Financial Times – sorry Mr. Murdoch. :)
