Hulu Plus Finds Home On Android Tablets

Hulu has managed to nestle into the market of Android tablets. Finally.

But only a few are in the list of supported devices so far.

Anyone who watched as the online streaming service was slowly and randomly rolled out to Android phones should know that it might take some time before massive tablet support is enacted, and the next device on the list is anyone's guess. For now, though, some tablet owners have reason to celebrate.

So here's the complete list of supported devices: Asus's Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Asus's Eee Pad Transformer, Motorola's Xoom, Motorola's XYBoard 10.1, Toshiba's Thrive, Acer's Iconia, and LG's G-Slate. Just like with the Android phone rollout, there doesn't seem to be a common denominator among these devices. When the phone app was getting off the ground, some even suggested that Hulu was working on one device at a time and simply used whatever phones they had available at their offices.

Hulu has confirmed that the seven devices mark "just the beginning of our Android tablet rollout." However, it did not provide any sort of time table as for when users can expect an update. Meanwhile, of course, iPad owners have been streaming Hulu content free and clear since last year.

As to be expected, the site blames hardware fragmentation, with each tablet running a different combination of Android version number, processor, and product display and layout. It's nice to see that the team is working on it, though.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
