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


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