    CNN.com released its CNN Mobile iPhone app on Tuesday, with a number of slick features its competitors don't have... including a $1.99 price tag.

    Other news outlets like The New York Times, France24, the Associated Press, and NPR have had free apps out for some time. CNN is taking something of a risk in making its offering a non-free download, but obviously hopes its feature set makes ...

    Clues continue to surface at every turn that Apple is tablet-bound.
