Publisher Condé Nast and Adobe Systems are developing a digital-magazine application to be compatible with laptops, netbooks, smart phones, and upcoming electronic slate devices.
Wired magazine, which covers tech news and information, will be the first to adapt the app, which will produce full-color, high-resolution images to replicate the experience of reading a print publication with the convenience of the internet.
This collaboration will bring magazine content into digitalized form for devices available in 2010. The companies hope to create a technology that will be applied to the publisher's other magazines and adopted throughout the industry.
Condé Nast is home to publishing brands such as Vogue, Architectural Digest, Maison & Jardin, Bon Appétit, GQ, Brides, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker.
