Zinio Bringing More Magazines To Android 3.0 Tablets

Is tablet publishing really the future for publishers? It's still pretty early to say for sure, but there's no question that it's having an impact. Zinio is a major player when it comes to distribution, and now they'll be making it easier for end-users to get digital mags on Android. The company this week announced that their delivery app was now available for Android 3.0 tablets, with "thousands" of magazines being available on the handful of Honeycomb tablets scattered across the market today.

At launch, more than 20,000 magazines will be available through Zinio on Android devices spanning select 2.2, 2.3 and all 3.0 Honeycomb versions, including Motorola Xoom, LG Optimus Pad, Acer Iconia Tab a500, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, etc. All Android users who download Zinio before June 15 will automatically be given – for free – 24 of the latest issues of top magazines across all major genres, including Cosmopolitan, ESPN The Magazine, Harvard Business Review, Men's Fitness, O, The Oprah Magazine and Us Weekly.

Unlike digital magazine options that require a different app for every title, or that are only available on one operating system, Zinio users get to keep all of their current and archived issues in one application, across multiple devices. Not a bad proposition, and given that the app itself is free, why not give it a taste?
