With help from Adobe, Condé Nast is showing off a concept “iTablet” app that may soon power a new generation of multimedia tablets and large touchscreen devices. Attached below is a video taken at the Wired Store in NY showcasing what a digital magazine from the publisher may look like — in this case on the rumored Apple Tablet with a 10 to 12-inch screen.

Personally, I think the multi-orientation (landscape, portrait mode), interactive publication looks great. I especially like the fact that they’ve decided to build it with cross-platform technology from Adobe. My guess… future digital magazines will be made with Adobe Acrobat 9+ (others think Adobe AIR) which is able to integrate Adobe InDesign / Illustrator / Photoshop / Flash files, video, audio, maps, hyperlinks, and more [demo].
