Is there still a place for newspapers?
The "i" is a compact size paper which costs 20p and shares the same editorial staff as The Independent.
Its owner, Russian tycoon Alexander Lebedev, also owns London's Evening Standard newspaper. Last year, the Standard became a freesheet and has seen its readership increase sharply as a result.
The UK's 11 major national daily newspapers have seen their circulation shrink an average 5.75% in the last year with more expensive quality papers being affected more than the cheaper tabloids.
Have you read the paper? What did you think of it? Will this new paper encourage more people to read papers? What can newspapers do to improve their circulation? Where do you get your news?
