RIM makes deal with NewspaperDirect

RIM has inked an agreement with e-editions distributor NewspaperDirect for its PressReader app to be preloaded on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, the firms announced today.

PressReader gives users access to more than 2,000 news publications from 95 countries. Most newspapers and magazines can be bought for US$0.99 per issue, or downloaded as part of a paid subscription on PressDisplay.com.

The app basically reproduces publications as PDFs, which “means potentially a significantly less interactive experience than an app but also one that costs less to put on a device,” paidContent explained.
