"The Daily, News Corp's foray into the world of digital newspaper publishing, might debut in the next few weeks. Executive James Murdoch, Chief Executive of News Corp. in Europe and Asia, verified this tentative launch date during the DLD conference in Munich, Germany. He also confirmed the iPad-based digital paper will be available for 99-cents per week as previously rumored."
Depending on what the content looks like (I'm hoping they have some type of free trial), I may end up purchasing this as that isn't a bad price. It's only going to be available in the US initially, and Murdoch has hired over 100 journalist to work on this digital newspaper. This is due out in the next few weeks, and speculation is that iOS 4.3 will be available at the same time since the subscription model is supported with that version.
