Awesome news-reading app Flipboard will soon make the jump from iOS to Android, with its first device on Android being the just-announced Samsung Galaxy S III.

It’s unusual for a startup of its kind to launch on just one Android device and then trickle onto others, but Flipboard has at least picked what will no doubt be a blockbuster phone. The Galaxy S III features a monster 4.8-inch screen and tons of cool new features like eye tracking and Siri-like “S Voice.”

Flipboard for Android will hit other Android devices in the coming months, the company says. You can sign up here for more updates.

In a hands-on impressions piece, SlashGear writes that the app on Android functions almost exactly like it does on the iPhone. But in this new version, you’ll be using the incredible-looking Galaxy S III and can use an Android widget to keep up to date.
