Bonnier will have ten of its apps preloaded onto the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 when it launches in Sweden

Swedish magazine publisher Bonnier said yesterday that it will have ten of its media apps pre-installed on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 when it appears in Telia stores in Sweden later this month.
The new Samsung tablet is scheduled to launch on June 29 in Sweden, and the tablet is loaded with tons of preinstalled material including magazines, newspapers, TV and films worth SEK 1000 (around $154), according to Bonnier's press release.

Bonnier apps that will be preinstalled include the daily newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Sydsvenskan, business daily Dagens industri, and magazines Allt om Mat, mama, Sk├Âna Hem, Styleby and Yourlife, as well as the on-demand TV and movie services TV4 Play and SF Anytime.

"The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the first Android tablet on the Swedish market that has a sufficiently large screen to work well with media products," said Peder Bonnier, head of digital media at Bonnier Tidskrifter. "It has been shown that there is a strong willingness to pay for products in tablet computers, and since we at Bonnier Tidskrifter believe in the power of the reading experience in the tablet, we want to make it as easy as possible to encounter our content."
