Newsstand Sales No Match for Wired iPad Edition
Only time will tell whether Wired's initial success will hold steady. Even so, the magazine may have an advantage over others — GQ, in particular, sold only 365 digital copies of its December 2009 issue — because Wired readers are, by nature, technologically inclined.
Whether or not the Wired app can rival its paper-and-ink counterpart has yet to be determined, but Anderson seems confident it very well could be a harbinger of good news for the future of magazines.
Until then, he is satisfied that, as he wrote in an editor's note for the June issue, "Wired is finally, well, wired."
