We recently heard that Rupert Murdoch’s iPad newspaper, The Daily would be launching withing the next few weeks, and now we have an official launch date of February the 2nd.
The Daily will be the first of many new subscription based iPad news applications and it will use Apple’s new weekly subscription model, the daily will cost readers $0.99 per week.
It will be interesting to see if The Daily becomes popular, and whether people will pay $0.99 per week to read content which will probably be available for free elsewhere on the web.
The Daily is a digital only publication that will only be available in the US at launch, and it is News Corp’s latest attempt to get people to pay for online content.
