The Daily, Meet Android

By Felicia Pride Comment

Big news for Android users.

After publishing exclusively on the iPad since its February 2011 launch, The Daily is now coming to an Android near you.

This month, select Verizon Wireless Android devices will come preloaded with the tablet newspaper, which ranked as the third top grossing iPad app in 2011.

The first lucky device? The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Existing users will get the app through a software update and new customers will see the app on home screens of the tablet.  The recently announced Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 will also offer The Daily at a later date.

“Verizon Wireless has been a key partner since we launched on iPad, and we’re thrilled to now be available to Android customers as we continue to expand and grow throughout the mobile space,” said Greg Clayman, publisher for The Daily.

Verizon Wireless customers with these select tablet devices can get a free trial week of The Daily and then choose from a monthly ($3.99) or annual ($39.99) subscription.
