Britannica Encyclopaedia was first published in print in the year 1768 and last print edition came out in 2010 – clearly digital is the way forward for the company. Clearly, digital is the way forward for the company comprising of more than 4,000 authors to date. Britannica Encyclopaedia partnered with Microsoft recently which would enable answers from Britannica Encyclopaedia Online to be included in Bing. I guess Bing integration wasnt the only thing that was part of the deal – Britannica Encyclopaedia also launched their Windows Phone application in the marketplace.
I haven’t tried the application yet because there is NO trial version available which is disappointing. The application will cost you $4.99 for the first year. Download link below:
p.s – Remember in the early 2000 when Britannica and Microsoft Encarta fought it out in the digital space (CD ROM War!). Look how things have changed now :)
