Should this even be called a newspaper? Isn't this a whole new category of publication?
New Newspaper Could Be Published Only on the iPad
As far back as last year, when Apple's iPad was nothing but an unconfirmed rumor, there have been reports that the computer giant was talking with media conglomerates about developing content exclusively for the device. But so far, the top-selling tablet computer has only featured applications that optimize media presentations on its 10-inch screen.
Now there are reports that the first iPad-specific newspaper, The Daily, may be produced by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. for the iPad's seven million (and counting) users. The start-up would have no print edition or web site, nor links to or from web sites.

The Daily would reportedly have an initial staff of 100 with three veteran managing editors. It would be available on the iPad for 99 cents a week or $4.25 monthly
