The highly anticipated launch of The Daily, an iPad only newspaper, will be pushed back by a few weeks reported All Things Digital. They said that the planned launch for Wednesday had been cancelled and a News Corp insider confirmed that the launch had been delayed.

Rupert Murdoch, the News Corp chairman and chief executive, was going to unveil the Daily with Apple chief executive Steve Jobs.

It is rumored that Apple is still working on changes that it’s making to iTunes in order to allow a subscription service that will automatically bill the Daily’s users on a weekly or monthly basis for the cost of receiving the download each morning.

I guess all of us who want to read the Daily on our iPads will have to wait a few weeks longer. Please comment with your thoughts about this!
