The full featured app signals the rise of Android in business.
Google’s GOOG Android platform is starting to make significant inroads into businesses. One sure-fire indicator is that Bloomberg has released an Android app for their news readers on Google’s smartphone platform. Android Bloomberg users were previously able to access their information via a mobile web interface but the new app is a “richer, more interactive, and engaging experience”.
Bloomberg also has apps for Nokia NOK mobile platforms.
A nice feature is the app’s ability to download news stories in the background (for reading on the subway?) . Aesthetically, its white text on black background looks really good on the Super-AMOLED Samsung Galaxy series phones.
The Android app is free and now available in the Android Market (do a search for ‘Bloomberg’).
