When Samsung announced the Galaxy S III earlier this month, there was an additional news story that broke within the GSIII’s unveiling: The once iOS-only Flipboard application was making its way to Android, but Samsung’s new flagship would be treated to a timed exclusivity. One of the motivating factors in Flipboard’s decision to make its Android debut on the Samsung’s crown jewel was the ability to work with a single display size and resolution.
We’ve got some good news for you if you don’t have plans to pick up a Galaxy S III but would still like to see what the Flipboard hype is about. Since Android phones come in a variety of shapes and sizes, Flipboard has decided to launch a beta for its Android app and is accepting signups as we speak. If you elect to participate in this program, we’d like to remind you that this is a beta build and bugs are highly expected.
