NY-based magazine publisher Hearst says it now has more than 300,000 paid digital downloads each month, spread out among sales from Apple‘s App Store, Barnes & Noble‘s Nook and the Zinio digital reader platform. According to Peter Kafka in All Things D, the company is set to begin selling magazines via Amazon‘s upcoming tablet Kindle Fire.

Unlike it’s peers, Hearst doesn’t offer print/digital bundles, however some of those downloads come from yearly digital subscriptions. NY-based Conde Nast, says its monthly digital circulation is now 500,000, with 225,000 of those digital only subscribers. The rest are free downloads tied to a print version.
