Time to Release Special Tablet-Only Edition on Boston Marathon

Time is going to release a special tablet-only edition on the Boston Marathon bombing this Thursday, April 18. The issue will include analysis of the attack and will be available for free download on iPads, Android tablets, Kindles and Nooks.

Thursday’s launch marks the first time the magazine has released a free tablet-only edition, though we assume people would be plenty mad if the glossy decided to charge for it. Time has released tablet-only issues only twice before: On November 7, the morning after President Obama was re-elected, and daily issues during last year’s conventions.

The digital Boston Marathon issue will debut alongside Time’s planned “Time 100″ issue.
