How Many Subscriptions Will You Pay For?

iPad subscription pricing is starting to leak out, and as expected, it's a little higher for the iPad users than for the many online/print subscribers.

From Endgadget:

"So we now have the official price for the WSJ iPad app subscription: $3.99 per week with a monthly credit card charge of $17.29. For that you get subscriber-only content areas such as Business and Markets with access to a 7 day archive that can be downloaded and read at any time....
...
Without the subscription, the free WSJ iPad app is limited to top articles and market data. Here's the catch: a subscription to both the print and online versions of the Wall Street Journal will currently set you back just $2.69 per week (plus 2 weeks free) for a monthly bill of $11.67... eleven dollars and sixty seven cents. Granted the WSJ claims that the 80% discount is a limited time offer but these newsstand discounts are always available in some form.....
"

But hey, this iPad-compatible content costs $$$$ to develop, in addition to the regular site....


And TUAW claims that: "...Esquire plans to offer an ad-free, downloadable format of its April issue for $2.99, $2 less than the paper version's price. ... Men's Health is reportedly going to charge the same $4.99 price for an iPad issue as they charge for the print version...."

Anyway, I am curious, how many subscriptions are the iPad owners here ready to purchase and keep in the long run? Answer truthfully now
