It looks like all the rumors, hearsay and hype can finally be put to bed. Apple and News Corp will hold a press conference next week to unveil News Corp’s iPad-only newspaper, “The Daily.” News Corp boss Rupert Murdoch will likely do the honors, and Apple VP Eddie Cue will be on hand to detail Apple’s newly available subscription services for publishers. The Daily is expected to cost subscribers $0.99 per week, and the digital paper will be run by former MTV exec Greg Clayman.
Still waiting for News Corp’s iPad-only newspaper to launch?

The Daily will cost subscribers $0.99 per week and will be iPad only at first. More →
