Hulu Plus finally lands on the Android Market, doesn't support all devices

Summary:Following Netflix's lead, Hulu is finally available on the Android Market - sans support for a number of flagship Android devices.

When Netflix finally released an app for Android phones, it invoked the ire of many an Android user whose devices were not initially supported by the app.

And it looks like Hulu is going the same route. On Wednesday, Hulu announced that Hulu Plus, its $7.99-a-month service has finally hit the Android Market - with one main caveat: Not all Android devices will be able to run the app. The list of supported devices so far is, in a word, brief, and includes the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 5G, Motorola Droid, Droid X, and Atrix. That's it. But those of you with a super fast Droid Charge or HTC Thunderbolt shouldn't lose hope just yet. Hulu says it will be making additional device announcements as time goes on. So there's that.

And the fragmentation train keeps on rolling.
