Daily Post and Western Mail launch on tablet computers

Some of the leading newspapers in Wales have launched tablet editions as more readers get their news online.

Electronic versions of the Western Mail, Daily Post, South Wales Echo and Wales on Sunday will be available to download for the Apple iPad with monthly paid-for access from Tuesday.

Figures show Trinity Mirror's newspapers' circulations have fallen while web versions have grown.

Its WalesOnline and Daily Post sites will continue to offer free access.

Marc Webber, a digital media analyst and former assistant editor of the Sun Online, said the way people accessed news had forced the newspapers to adapt.

He said launching tablet editions also made them far more accessible worldwide.
