I used to have plan to used iPad2 as a replacement for buying monthly magazines. I see (and assume) that e-magazines are cheaper than the real one (from my experiences with Kindle), save space to keep the hardcopy, more interactive, can bring it anywhere and there are many Thai magazines available on iPad platform (and keep growing, yeh from my assumption again).
After I have chance to proof it by myself, below are the truths that I found.
1. Yeh, it save space in your room to keep the hardcopy but you still need to have spaces to keep it on your iPad. Differ from Kindle books, iPad magazines are a lot bigger. We may bring 100+ (if not reach 1,000) books with us on Kindle, but we can’t do that with iPad since the e-magazines mostly size 200-300 MB and upper. If you own 16 GB model, you may have limit to take around 30 magazines with you.
