Guardian launches printable internet edition

The Guardian has launched a new web service which allows readers to
download and print out a rolling version of the newspaper that is updated
every 15 minutes.

G24 is an eight- to 12-page PDF covering either general news, international news, economics, sport or media stories.

The
new product is aimed at the lunchtime and evening commuter market who
may want an updated print product to read on the train or bus. It is to
be launched later in the summer with BT as a sponsor.

Two weeks
ago The Guardian revealed that it was placing a greater priority on the
web than ever by deciding opting to publish City and foreign news
stories first on the internet – rather than in the print edition.

Editor
Alan Rusbridger said: "G24 will be yet another way for Guardian readers
to consume their paper. Increasingly, readers are demanding editorial
content tailored to the time and place of their choosing, rather than
to artificial deadlines dictated by old print production schedules. G24
– which will draw heavily on the continuously-updated website (twice
voted the best newspaper website in the world) – will be a perfect
quick read for the journey to work, or home in the evening."

Guardian
Newspapers chief executive Carolyn McCall said: "This innovative
development underlines our ambition to ensure that the Guardian's
distinctive, independent content is available in a variety of formats
throughout the day, meeting the changing needs of our online users and
readers."
