News Corp’s iPad-only publication supposedly due Dec. 9

Reuters recently reported that News Corp is working on an iPad-only publication, “The Daily,” and today’s rumor suggest that it will be introduced at a December 9th (or thereabouts) press event featuring Rupert Murdoch and Steve Jobs. It’s also suspected that this event will see the introduction of the much-rumored App Store subscriptions that many publishers have been clamoring for.

Apple is supposedly developing a Newsstand app for iOS, perhaps similar to the iBookstore. If so, The Daily could be among its offerings. Rumors price The Daily at US$0.99 per week.

If there is an event scheduled with Murdoch and Jobs on the ticket, you can be sure that they’ll be discussing more than a news app. We’ll let you know if and when the announcement goes official, and of course will have full coverage on launch day.
