Apple and News Corp sent out invitations on Thursday to press for the launch of the Daily, a newspaper designed specifically for iPads.
According to the invitation received by The Loop on Thursday, News Corp Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch will be joined by Apple’s Vice President of Internet Services, Eddy Cue to introduce the newspaper.
The event will be held in New York on February 2, 2011 at 11:00 am ET.
Having Eddy Cue on hand for Apple makes sense since Steve Jobs just announced he would be taking a leave of absence from the company. Cue has been responsible for some of the most successful product launches for Apple in recent years.
