News Corp. could be releasing an iPad-only newspaper called The Daily.
Steve Jobs is collaborating with media mogul Rupert Murdoch to create a newspaper called The Daily. According to reports, there will be no “print edition” or “web edition”; the central innovation, developed with assistance from Apple engineers, will be to dispatch the publication automatically to an iPad or any of the growing number of similar devices.
It is speculated that the tablet-only newspaper will use the new App Store subscription model at 99 cents a week, about $4.25 per month. The app may go in beta this December.
The editorial line of ‘the Daily’ hopes to combine “a tabloid sensibility with a broadsheet intelligence”, and there is no print edition or – most interestingly – web edition planned.
