As if today’s pay wall announcement from the New York Times Company wasn’t enough, the news broke that an iPad-exclusive newspaper, The Daily, will begin charging for access next week. Unlike the Times’ entry-level $15 a month subscription for reading online articles on smartphones, the privilege of enjoying The Daily on your iPad costs just 99 cents per week, or forty bucks per year. Rupert Murdoch’s digital-only newspaper is slated to launch in Western Europe by summer, The Guardian reports. The exact release depends on when Apple’s new iOS subscription service becomes available in the country.

And Apple CEO Steve Jobs may or may not participate in a launch event.
The date has moved around a lot but it appears that it will be coming at some point in the future and carry a $.99/week price. Other billionaires launching iPad publications recently include Richard Branson. expand full story
