Flipboard iPad App Expanding into TV?
Flipboard mixes articles from a growing list of brands like Oprah.com and the Economist with endless feeds from Twitter and Facebook into a customized magazine style app. With Flipboard most all of the free content online can be read.
This could be a smart play for this heavily funded startup especially since the Tablet market continues to explode. Industry experts predict Tablet sales should almost triple to 43.6 million units for 2011, and then double again to 81.3 million tablets in 2012. Reuters says that Flipboard is now talking with studios striving to acquire deals and rights to add TV shows to their platform.
