GQ records low sales of its iPad edition

IPad edition has sold just 365 copies since launch.

The iPad edition of men's magazine GQ sold just 365 copies on the Apple App Store although it was priced lower than the print magazine.

The iPad version of the December 2009 issue of the Conde Nast publication costs $2.99 per download, $2 less than its print version.

Pete Hunsinger, vice president and publisher of GQ, said he was not worried about the low app sales as the iPad edition cost nothing, due to no printing or postage charges involved in launching it on the mobile device.

Hunsinger expects sales to pick up in June, saying the iPad edition of the magazine brings added value to advertisers.
