After much anticipation and a bit of a false start, digital magazine service Flipboard is finally ready to release its new Windows Phone application.

Flipboard’s service allows you to get a curated crop of fresh news stories on mobile devices from a variety of sources based on what you (and even friends on social media) are interested in. The interface is meant to mimic that of a traditional (aka paper) magazine.

The new Windows Phone app was first announced over a year ago, and the company even accidentally released an early, incomplete version of it last week. As part of the launch, Flipboard said the app will be pre-loaded on Microsoft’s Lumia 830 phone.

The app is now available in the Windows Phone app store. Check out the demo video from Flipboard for a closer look at the app in action.
