HOW LONG AGO WERE THEY TOLD IT WAS CHEAPER THAN HOME DELIVERY?

Tribune Co. will reportedly offer free tablets to subscribers (Evan MacDonald, Aug 10, 2011, Consumer Reports)

The Tribune Co., which owns papers such as the Chicago Tribune, the Los Angeles Times, and the Baltimore Sun, is reportedly readying a plan to offer subscribers a free touch-screen tablet in exchange for a two-year subscription to one of its print newspapers.

The tablet is expected to run a modified version of Google's Android OS and prominently feature content from the customer's hometown newspaper. The company is reportedly looking to Samsung to provide the hardware. Both the Chicago Sun-Times and CNN cited anonymous sources who were current and former Tribune Co. employees for the information.
