    Rumors of pricing for the electronic Wall Street Journal, iPad edition surfaced today. According to engadget a "a person familiar with the matter" says the Journal plans to charge subscribers $17.99 per month for iPad subscriptions -- for comparison, the print version of the WSJ costs $349 for 52 weeks or about $29 per month. Not a bad savings for having it more conveniently delivered and avoiding the morning hunt in the rain for the newspaper!

    I get offers from time to time to subscribe for $100 for the year. If they do that for the ipad I'll take them up on it.

    Not a bad price. I'm not a Wall Street Journal kind of guy... but am looking forward to the NY Times. I wonder what they will charge for their app? Their digital edition is currently $14.99 per month (for 7 days a week) which isn't bad. I figure the iPad edition will be at least that. I was hoping more towards $12 per month but I would go up to $15. Not sure if I would go much beyond $15 though.

    Seems like a good price if you are a reader of the publication. I don't really understand paying tho when you can get all the news in it on google news or any other online news site for free.
