iPad-only newspaper The Daily to come next week

28 Jan 2011

The Daily, the digital newspaper being developed by Apple and Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp that will be available only on the iPad, is to officially launch on 2 February.

Originally, Murdoch and Apple CEO Steve Jobs were supposed to launch The Daily on 27 January in San Francisco.

Now, with Jobs haven taken a medical leave of absence, the launch has been scheduled for 2 February at New York’s Guggenheim Museum, with Apple’s vice-president of internet services, Eddy Cue, taking Jobs’ place.

The delay in The Daily‘s launch is said to be due to a glitch in a new iTunes store feature that will allow new editions of the app to upload automatically to iPads.
