Flipboard Debuting On The Samsung Galaxy S III Before Rolling Out To The Rest Of The Platform, Time Frame Unknown

For those of you patiently waiting for the popular Flipbard application, one of Google Currents‘ direct competitors, you’ll be happy to know that the app has finally made its way to the Android platform.  To kick things off, the app will be exclusive to Samsung Galaxy III devices initially before finally rolling out to the rest of the platform.  We weren’t told exactly how long the rest of the world will have to wait but we’ll do our best to find out for you.  The UI looks pretty similar to what the iPhone currently has today, and as expected, allows gestures for navigating through your aggregated content.  However, unlike the iPhone, the Android version will of course sport a cool widget which takes up an entire page providing the day’s latest and popular news feeds.  If you think you’ll most likely be on board come launch day, you can sign up at the link below to receive the update once the application is available for Android.  And by the way the devs stated the app will be available for “Android mobile phones” we’re not banking on a tablet version right off the bat.  So, here’s to hoping we don’t have to wait for the app too long.  And if we do, lets hope our boys over XDA will have something to say about it.  Are you looking forward to the app or are you content with Google Currents and other news aggregation apps already on the Android OS?

About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.
