News Corp. chairman and chief executive Rupert Murdoch said that the Wall Street Journal will start charging $2/week for their mobile application including their BlackBerry application. Even current WSJ subscribers will have to pay $1/week. That is pretty sad news for an application that was released free over a year ago.
I remember that AP News pulled this shtick a few months back and reneged once they received a ton of negative feedback from users and made the app free again. Here is to hoping the worlds second largest newspaper does the same.
So is anybody going to actually pay $104/year for a news app on their BlackBerry?
