NEW YORK, NY and BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Verizon Wireless and The Daily have announced an agreement to make the first Android™ version of the top-selling subscription tablet news app available on select Verizon Wireless devices beginning this month.
The first Verizon Wireless device to come pre-loaded with The Daily will be the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. Devices will get the app with an update to the software, and The Daily will also be available on the home screens on those tablets for new customers. 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.
The Daily, the No. 3 top grossing iPad app in 2011, is the first and only national news publication created and designed for tablet computers. From breaking news and in-depth analysis to gossip, editorials, sports, business, and tech coverage, The Daily publishes more than 100 pages of original content each day, providing its readers with news that pops.
Verizon Wireless customers with these select tablet devices, and others to come, can enjoy a free trial week of The Daily, and then choose from a monthly ($3.99) or annual ($39.99) subscription. Download charges vary and airtime or megabyte charges may apply according to the customer’s data plan.
