India on the move to tablet computers

Although the newspaper business in India is booming and gaining 10% per year, Rajagopal is expecting to lose a lot of revenue to the tablet market: "A whole generation will bypass the printed newspaper and get news on their tablet computer." 

Since the Indian government is handing out free tablet computers to students all over the country, Dinamalar, with a circulation of 850,000 copies, needs to adjust quickly, says Rajagopal. She hopes to get new ideas and new possibilities to do so at World Newspaper Week.
