Playboy Headed to the iPad

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner revealed in a series of tweets Tuesday that his magazine’s entire archive, from its first issue in 1953 to its latest, will arrive on the iPad in March, uncensored. Apple has in the past refused to allow anything on the App Store with nudity, and as the web site Digital Trends noted, CEO Steve Jobs has said: “Folks who want porn can buy an Android phone.”

Playboy has released an iPhone app, but it doesn’t contain nudity. However, Apple has been seeking syndication deals to release content geared toward the iPad, such as the iPad-only newspaper The Daily, which will be launched in conjunction with News Corp. The launch of The Daily has been delayed, though.

Judging by his Twitter page, Mr. Hefner is a prolific tweeter.
