The Daily iPad newspaper delayed as images emerge

The Daily hits the skids as images emerge

The Daily, the iPad-bound digital newspaper set to be launched by the impending Apple and News Corp partnership, is to face further delays, latest reports have revealed.

Having already faced a number of delays it was announced earlier this week that Apple CEO Steve Jobs and News Corp Head Honcho Rupert Murdoch were set to take to the stage of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art next Wednesday, January 19th, to finally unveil the first iPad-only newspaper.

Reports from the Wall Street Journal, however, have today revealed that the expected launch is to be postponed until a yet unknown date as issues and continued testing of the subscription platform that is set to deliver the digital newspaper persist.

The Daily will be the first publication to use Apple’s upcoming subscription based app service that will allow users to have the latest editions of periodicals delivered direct to their iPads follow sign up. The WSJ is quoting “a person familiar with the matter” who has reportedly claimed: "The app and the service work, it's just getting them to talk to each other that needs more time."

News Corp has reportedly confirmed the latest delay but has failed to comment on any further reasoning or expected arrival date. Focus now turns to the imminent arrival of the mooted iPad 2, pegged for February 1st, with the unveiling of The Daily and iOS 4.3 distinct possibilities to join the iPad 2 announcement.
