Rupert Murdoch’s “The Daily” Coming to Android in Second Quarter
Rupert Murdoch’s (News Corp) Apple-only digital newspaper, The Daily, is set to land on Android tablets next quarter. This news comes as somewhat of a surprise considering Murdoch has been quoted as saying that “..last year, this year, and next year will belong to the iPad.” Perhaps things changed once the team who actually designed the newspaper caught wind of Android 3.0’s capabilities. We’d forgive them if they (wrongly) assumed that Android tablets would look and feel like large smart phones. With the free trial period of the Daily coming to an end later this week, we’ll find out what kind of stickiness the app has.
Are any of you Android users looking forward to The Daily on your tablet?
