Bloomberg for (Android) Tablet Makes it Debut

There weren’t many apps designed specifically for Android tablets when I had the Motorola Xoom tablet on loan a few weeks ago. Bloomberg just launched its first app for Android tablets to increase that count by one. The app is available for free in the Android Market.

Bloomberg for Tablet (Android Market)

You can create personalized views of the news by industry, region, exclusivity, region or popularity. You can also read news related to particular stocks and see details for the open, close, high, or low over the last 5 years. News stories can also be read offline.

It is a free app supported by advertising and provides news, market data and a personal stocks list. Samsung is featuring the app in its Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet launch campaign.

Android OS 3.x’s home screen widgets are my favorite aspect of Honeycomb tablets. And, this app features two home screen widgets that can be used to view a personal stock list or breaking news.
