The Daily will be available on Android this Spring

All Things D are reporting that The Daily’s iPad exclusive days are numbered.  The Daily is prepping an Android tablet version which should be ready by the end of June this year.

I seem to recall that Rupert Murdoch had promised that The Daily would be iPad until next year, so I really have to wonder why the new app is moving so quickly.

At first I thought it was because development moved faster than expected, but that’s not the kind of thing you leak. If you’re ahead of schedule, you launch. You don’t predict a launch. Also, who has ever been ahead of schedule?

No, I think the iPad subs are a lot lower than expected and/or cost is a lot higher than expected. At least, lower than Murdoch expected; any one who used it probably would not be surprised.
