Rupert Murdoch’s predictions for newspaper on BlackBerry

23 Comments

News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch said on Thursday that the future of newspapers is digital, but it may be 10 to 15 years before readers go fully electronic.

“Instead of an analog paper printed on paper you may get it on a panel which would be mobile, which will receive the whole newspaper over the air, (and) be updated every hour or two,” he said.

“You’ll be able to get the guts or the main headlines and alerts and everything on your Blackberry, on your Palm or whatever, all day long.

“I think it’s two or three years away before they get introduced in a big way and then it will probably take 10 years or 15 years for the public to swing over.”

Does anyone else think that Rupert is a little behind the times technologically? How can he say we’re 2 or 3 years away before news on your BlackBerry is introduced in a big way? With Viigo, you get your news updated every minute. The Wall Street Journal and a host of other newspapers already have BlackBerry apps. Someone needs to get Rupert App World so he can catch up with the rest of us.
