"Thousands of magazines that satisfy every passion and hobby, from Road & Track and Rolling Stone to Robb Report, ELLE and BlackBook are now available to Android users on the Zinio app in Google’s Android Market. Whether they are at home on their PCs and Macs, or on the road with their Apple or Android tablets and select smartphones, magazine lovers get the most from their magazines with Zinio."
Zinio has been putting magazines on iOS devices for a while. They've finally released a reader for Android! If you like reading any magazine and you have a Honeycomb tablet you may want to check this out. Zinio apparently offers almost any magazine you can think of. You can get the Zinio app for free in the Android Market. If you need some incentive, they're offering an issue from the top 24 magazines for free to get you started. The blurb above, from their press release, says Zinio works on "select smartphones" but I tried and couldn't install it (the Market wouldn't let me) on my Droid X. It looks like you're set as long as you have a Honeycomb Tablet. I'd love to hear how the reading experience is on a Honeycomb tablet with their app. Let us know if you try it out!
