Default Magazine and Newspapers for Xoom

Since I've pre-ordered my Xoom today, I wanted to be able to hit the ground running with magazine's that I could get with it. Come to find out (literally today) Time Inc., has already come out with a bundle for Android.

Here is an article that discusses it.

And here is the website that lets you subscribe to it.

What other magazines and magazine subscriptions are available for the Xoom. What would you like to see made available?

Here is Time Incs, website.

Very awesome. Thanks. I signed up for SI. Nice to see the swimsuit issue available for SI :-). Was checking out some of the PC navigation. A little janky, but I know it will be great on the XOOM.

On the other hand, not so nice to only see 2 available issues to read - the last "real" SI issue and the swimsuit one. Maybe I missed the navigation somewhere but "all available issues" only listed 2 for me...

zinio is what I am waiting on. I dont need crazy features etc, I just want a copy of the paper on my tab...zinio was working for euro galaxy tab versions and I got the APK to run well on my US tab...I figure I can do the same until they release an official app,,,which is coming soon from my emails to the Zinio folks.

Zinio has a great selection and they automatically send you the latest issue every month.

I have Zinio and let me tell you its good if thats all you can get, but it's nothing compared to app magazines. T3 is the best app magazine I've ever seen. When that and Netflix make it to android I'll leave my iPad.

And if you like comics you have to have:

I'm interested in seeing how the Nook app will work for this purpose. Just browsing the B&N store, they seemed to have a good selection of magazines available. Once they optimize the app for Honeycomb, I think I'll give it a shot.

@Kennychaffin -

What are you using for IEEE Computer? Is there a specific app, or are you just using the PDF on your Xoom?

I tried it with quickoffice (built in) and Aldiko. Both about the same--a few slight difference in operation, but display pretty much equivalent.
