The first digital newspaper designed exclusively for Apple’s iPad is being launched today, with a subscription fee of about 62p a week.
Dubbed ‘The Daily’, the world’s first ‘iNewspaper’ is a joint venture between technology giant Apple and media conglomerate News Corp.
The paper will have neither print nor web edition, as news stories will be pushed directly to subscribed iPad tablets.
However, readers will not receive constant news updates throughout the day. The Daily will issue a single daily edition, following the model of traditional print newspapers.
After months of secret collaboration, the official launch will take place this afternoon in New York, with News Corp executives as well as Apple’s vice president of Internet Services Eddy Cue attending the event.
