Zinio And NVIDIA Team Up To Bring Hardware-Accelerated Magazine Reading To Tegra Tablets

One of the best things about having a tablet is that it can take the place of many other, usually not-so-techy, things in our lives. Paper products like newspapers and magazines, for example, are easily replaceable with a simple application. Zinio is a popular newsstand app that aims to take the place of the latter, and while it has only been in the Android Market for a short amount of time, it just received an update that makes it even more desirable.

The newest update is designed specifically for Tegra-based Honeycomb tablets, as it fully utilizes the Tegra 2's GPU and hardware acceleration to create a visually stimulating reading experience. Thanks to the handiwork of NVIDIA's engineers, code that offloads things like page turns, panning, and zooming from the CPU to the GPU has been integrated, creating a buttery-smooth reading experience.
Zinio offers thousands of different magazines from every major publisher in several different categories - including business and news, tech, science, international, and more. If you want to read it, there's a good chance that you'll find it on Zinio.
The update is available in the Android Market now, and you can grab it by hitting the widget below.
