The Daily iPad newspaper launch in "next few weeks"

The Daily to finally hit iPad in the coming weeks

Following a number of delays and a postponed January 19th unveiling, the first subscription based iPad specific newspaper The Daily has been officially pegged for arrival “in the next few weeks”.

Most recently delayed due to further work being required on the app store subscription platform Apple plans to launch alongside its digital newspaper collaboration with Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp, The Daily has now once again been scheduled for unveiling with confirmed pricing making its first appearance.

Speaking at the DLD Conference in Munich, Murdoch Jr and Chairman & CEO of News Corp, James Murdoch teased the upcoming iPad release announcing “I think should be launching in the next few weeks.” He added: “It’s going to be a brand new piece of journalism. We want to get out there quickly, at a good price, and I think it will surprise people. I also think it will succeed or fail on the journalism part, not the bells and whistles.”

Answering one of the big unknowns of The Daily, James Murdoch went on to out the download’s price tag stating: “We wanted it to have a very good price, affordable for most people, at 99 cents a week. It lowers the barrier for people to enjoy high quality journalism. We realize the pricing models for apps and paid journalism as a whole is still developing, whether it will be bundled or tiered, and so on.”
