Magazines for Kindle - has the eBook arrived ?

An American publisher has launched a new weekly political magazine distributed exclusively on the Amazon Kindle eBook.

The magazine, dubbed Opinionated, will feature 25 opinion articles, 750-1,000 words each, in every issue, offering social and political commentary on domestic and international economics, affairs and pop culture.

Evidently, the magazine will contain no ads and will operate on a subscription revenue business model. Opinionated, published on Mondays, will cost $.49 an issue, or $1.49 for a monthly subscription.

The publisher, Tribune, says it is developing other magazines for Kindle as well on topics including personal finance, travel, food and popular culture.
