[The Chosun Ilbo, March 6 2008] Chosun Ilbo 'ireader' an Instant Hit

Some 19,000 people downloaded a program for the Chosun Ilbo’s new “ireader” digital paper service on Wednesday, the day it was launched. The number is outstanding, given that altogether only 90,230 people have downloaded a program for the New York Times’ digital paper service over the whole of last year.

On Wednesday, some 10,000 people read 100,000 pages of news articles via the ireader service. Users were impressed by the easy readability and convenient online functions. A netizen said the service was better than expected and its success would be “amazing” if it can be used with global hit gadgets like Apple’s iPhone.
