The Daily iPad newspaper to launch January 19th?

iPad specific newspaper to land later this month

Two of the most influential and powerful men in the non-political world Rupert Murdoch and Steve Jobs are set to share a stage later this month to officially unveil their upcoming iPad-based joint venture, new reports suggest.

Believed to be scheduled for January 19th, Apple head Jobs and News Corp boss Murdoch with take to the stage of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to launch The Daily, the first daily updated iPad-specific newspaper.

Murdoch, whose company News Corp owns some of the world’s largest publications and broadcasters including The Sun, The Times and Sky, has dubbed the Daily the “number one most exciting project” of recent months and has declared his willingness to invest up to $30 million (£19.3 million) in the digital release.

The latest reports seemingly confirm a number of predictions made shortly before the Christmas period which pegged The Daily with a launch in the week beginning January 17th. It is believed that a weekly subscription to The Daily will set Stateside users back a penny shy of $1.

Although far from confirmed, it has been suggested that, based on Apple’s announcement of the iPad late last January, the much mooted iPad 2 will launch alongside The Daily later this month.

Stay tuned to T3.com and the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds for all the latest on the launch of The Daily and the highly anticipated iPad 2.
