WSJ now has an Indian online version.

Wall Street Journal now launched an online version for India. This will include coverage from the New Delhi and Mumbai bureaus of Wall Street Journal.
WSJ.com is largest paid-subscription news site on the Web, with 980,000 paid subscribers in mid-2007. via
It is also reported that WSJ is all set to launch its facsimilie edition in India next month, The soon to be launched fax version of newspaper is likely to be priced at Rs 30 a copy.

I Think this is a good move by WSJ. WSJ has identified the potential of the Indian Markets.
In my post a month back I described the Indian Entertainment and Media Industry.
Online news papers have yet to show much. There is much potential let in them. At present Indian stands 7th in the world in Internet usage with 32.1 million users. This figure is bond to increase. With this WSJ.com (Indian version) will surely be in demand. This is a right decision by WSJ.Com.
Currently WSJ is serving in print media segment with a tie up with HT Live MINT news paper.
