Having been officially unveiled with 100 pages of original daily content, interactive design features and a US-only readership for $40 a year it was just a matter of days before the full Daily offering was to be discovered available completely free online.

Following The Daily’s arrival one eagle-eyed attending journo announced he has spotted the iPad 2 at the newspaper app unveiling sporting a front-facing camera. Following this claimed sighting details have emerged around a possible unveiling next week as the mooted tablet is pegged as sporting a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Whilst insider sources have claimed SD card slot inclusion rumours are wide of the mark, others have suggested the second-gen iPad will boast an anti-reflective screen.
