‘The Daily’ iPad Only Newspaper to Launch In January

The eventual death of all-things print just moved one step closer to reality with the news that the Rupert Murdoch backed digital and iPad only (At launch) newspaper The Daily is set to launch in January. At least according to Peter Kafka at MediaMemo.

While earlier reports were touting a December launch, it seems the staff working on the digital paper needed some more time to create their iPad app which will reportedly feature “lots of video” and “cool multimedia bells and whistles.” This includes, as you may guess, a really cool 3D effect that “lots of people are excited about.”

The Daily will be a daily iPad newspaper that will make sure of a new push delivery system from Apple. The digital newspaper will be delivered every morning to your iPad without you having to manually download it. That is, of course, if your iPad is connected to the Internet.

So, with this coming soon it begs the question: Will you read an iPad only newspaper? If so, how much would you be willing to pay for a subscription? Sound off in the comments.

    I believe the Daily will have a format like FOX news. In ratings it is a winner. If you put just plain news in the iPad the news will be the same as all the others.

      You may be right. No matter what it should be interesting to see if Murdoch and company can make a go of it.
