The Android Market’s got lots of apps at this point, sure, but the question was always if it had the right apps. The addition of Hulu Plus today makes for a solid answer. Well, for six handsets in the US, anyway.
Hulu Plus has begun an “early rollout” on Android, a polite way of saying that it’s available for you and you but not the rest of you over there. And the handsets that are compatible include some of the big names – Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix – there are quite a few popular handsets, and countless bitty ones, that are left out in the cold.
It’s another one of those Android fragmentation stories, a platform where not all phones are upgraded equal. And tablets, where Hulu Plus would really shine, are even more out in the cold. But for now, if you own one of the chosen six, enjoy! You get a free week-long trial and pay the same $US8/month as everyone else thereafter. [Android Market via Hulu Blog]
