News Corp’s iPad only newspaper “The Daily” was initially set to launch on Januray 19th, but was delayed after rumours of technical issues with Apple’s new subscription service.

Reuters is quoting Rupert Murdoch’s son James as saying it should be available in “a couple of weeks” which was superceeded by a recent press invitation for a launch on February 2nd. The Daily will be the first product to test Apple’s new subscription plan for purchasing iPad content on an on-going basis – up until now people could only buy individual issues of a magazine or paper. It will initially be available only in the U.S. and will sell for $0.99 per issue.
