Flipboard for Android to be a Galaxy S III exclusive...for now

Flipboard for Android to be a Galaxy S III exclusive...for now
Here’s a juicy bit of app gossip to emerge from Samsung’s Unpacked event – popular iOS newsreader Flipboard will be coming to Android, by way of an exclusive window of availability on the Samsung Galaxy S III. Flipboard won numerous user-experience awards on the iPad, and has become a hit on the iPhone as well since it launched last December. Android users have options like Pulse and Google Currents, but until now they have been locked out of the Flipboard game.

Owners of other Android devices will have to wait until Samsung’s exclusivity period runs out…or until some enterprising developer rips the .apk off the device and shares it with the world, whichever comes first. What do you guys think - did Flipboard wait too long to unseat Pulse and other Android news readers, or will it win on virtue of elegant design and user experience?

Galaxy S III owners will get to make up their own minds in a couple of weeks.

its going to take quite a bit to replace pulse to me.. Its sso easy to view my 40+ web pages and stories at a glance through pulse I don't see how they could improve that.

I'm using Google reader on my PC all the time and I just love it... So what would be the perfect app for me on an android smartphone?

Google currents is great.
but if your a heavy reader and info nut like I am you can't beat pulse. I've tried probably 10+ different readers and I always come back to pulse.

I'm so anxious to see what they will look like on the US carriers!

yep pulse is great
you can select what you want to view
you can have as much tabs or catagories as much as you want(and it supports)
they have everything
and most important their neat user interface

its hard for then to trumph out pulse in that race
