The Timesâ€™ paid model is just two weeks old but, still, a number of stats came through this weekend – none of them from the horseâ€™s mouthâ€¦
First, the meat – some potentially significant first numbers on how successful the paperâ€™s paid websites have been in their first two weeks. Thereâ€™s no attribution for these, but the fact theyâ€™re reported by former Times media correspondent Dan Sabbagh might be some cause for validityâ€¦
â€”Readers registered during free trial period: 150,000.
â€”Paying subscribers: 15,000 (Sabbagh: â€˜This figure, apparently, is considered disappointingâ€™).
â€”iPad customers so far: 12,500
