LAS VEGAS--Verizon Wireless and The Daily have just announced an agreement to bring the popular subscription-based iPad news app to select Android tablets.

Beginning this month, The Daily will come preinstalled on Verizon's Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and will be available for the Galaxy Tab 7.7 at a later date. According to both Verizon and The Daily, more tablet support is in the works. If you're lucky enough to have one of these select devices, then your subscription fees can be conveniently charged directly to your Verizon Wireless bill.

A top-seller like The Daily making its way to Google's mobile platform must feel like a bit of a coup to Android fans. Perhaps it's only the beginning of a wave of popular iOS-only developers locking their sights on the huge market of Android users.

The Daily for Android is free to try for a week. After that, subscriptions run for $3.99 per month, or $39.99 per year.
