News Corp delays launch of the Daily

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

Rupert Murdoch’s incoming newspaper which is exclusive to the iPad, The Daily, is to suffer a launch delay.

A launch event was planned by News Corp and Apple for the middle of next week, but according to All Things Digital’s sources, the event has now been pushed back.

This is apparently to give Apple more time to hone the iTunes subscription service for magazines which the virtual publication will be sold through.

The delay will only be a matter of weeks, though, so we can expect to be reading The Daily probably at the beginning of February. If we had an iPad, that is…

The Daily will be a tabloid style e-paper published daily (strangely enough), but with a more informed and upmarket broadsheet tone, covering all the latest news. Apparently it will employ a team of a hundred or so journalists.
