Word's on the street that Richard Branson, chairman of Virgin Group, will announce a magazine app for the iPad called "Project" (nice name) on Tuesday. Several European media outlets have apparently received invitations for a special event, but it's unclear whether Branson will announce the launch of the app or just offer a preview. Actually, no one ever heard of Branson's iPad "Project" before.
If Branson's really working on a magazine app for iPad, it'd be interesting to know if Virgin is involved in anyway with Apple's plans to launch app subscriptions for iOS. Will we see Branson, Murdoch and Jobs on stage at the rumored December 9th event?
