The Tribune Co., one of the largest news enterprises in the United States, is developing its own tablet computer based on the Google Android OS that will be offered to its newspaper subscribers, free of charge.

The media company may even team with a mobile service provider to offer its extended plan subscribers a wireless data plan for free, or at a highly subsidized price.

Newspapers of The Tribune Co. including The Chicago Tribune, The Baltimore Sun and The Los Angeles Times currently offer free apps for most smartphones and the iPad.

The company also has a multimedia program, called Mosaic, for Windows tablets, smartphones and the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
