Belgian Newspaper To Test Electronic Paper


"The Antwerp-based daily De Tijd will soon become the world's first newspaper to publish a digital version on so-called 'electronic paper'.

Instead of buying your daily paper, from April 2006, 200 subscribers will be able to start the day by connecting a portable electronic device supplied by De Tijd to the internet and start downloading their daily paper. Updates will be automatic during the day, if subscribers have access to wireless technology.

De Tijd is also thinking about publishing advertisement corresponding to the time of the day. Coffee and cereals in the morning, beer and snacks in the evening."
