Times: 15,000 paying subs?

Times’ Paid Model: The Unofficial Numbers Come In:

The Times’ paid model is just two weeks old but, still, a number of stats came through this weekend – none of them from the horse’s mouth…

First, the meat – some potentially significant first numbers on how successful the paper’s paid websites have been in their first two weeks. There’s no attribution for these, but the fact they’re reported by former Times media correspondent Dan Sabbagh might be some cause for validity…

—Readers registered during free trial period: 150,000.
—Paying subscribers: 15,000 (Sabbagh: ‘This figure, apparently, is considered disappointing’).
—iPad customers so far: 12,500
