Google Hopes to Bring Newspapers to Android
Google is looking to remain even with Apple in the battle for digital content on the latest mobile devices. Apple has been helping publishers to provide subscriptions to its users, and Google is hoping to do the same thing. Google is reportedly engaged in discussions with Time Warner, Conde Nast, and Hearst Publications, while Apple is hoping to get its hands on News Corp. Amazon and Barnes & Noble offer similar services on the Kindle and Nook. Google is planning to take a smaller cut of revenue than Apple does, and use user data to help with marketing the subscriptions.
