Random House Still Has Not Struck an iPad Deal

RH_Logo_Sm.jpgJust minutes after the launch of the iPad this year, we noted that the Apple (AAPL) announcement mentioned publishing partnerships with Penguin, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, Hachette, but not Random House.

Today Financial Times reported that Random House CEO Markus Dohle said the company “was treading carefully, as Apple’s pricing regime could erode established publishing practices.” The news comes on the heels of a report of “stable revenues” at the publisher.

The iPad will be available in early April, leaving both companies a little more time to bargain. At the iPad launch, Random House spokesman Stuart Applebaum had this statement. “Random House welcomes Apple’s iPad and iBooks app and we look forward to our continuing conversations with them about how we might best work together.” (Via Booksquare)
