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.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
