For Slate readers on Android, this moment has been a long time coming, but it’s finally here. No longer do you have to feel snubbed by Slate for catering to those with iPhones and iPads, because now, you can have Slate on your Android device, as well. Your day has come!

The Slate Group have announced that the Slate app is now available for free on the Android Market.

You’ll be able to keep up with Slate’s analysis and commentary no matter where you are with the new app that features access to Slate’s blogs and articles via Android-friendly navigation designed for easy browsing.

In addition, you’ll also have access to illustrations, photos and the ability to stream Slate’s podcasts directly through the app without tying yourself to a desktop, and that means not having to use iTunes. The app also features integration with Instapaper for later reading of stories that are important to you, or easy sharing on Facebook.

Finally, all of the great stories, commentaries, analysis and other content that you’ve come to expect from Slate.com is available right there on your Android-based phone or tablet, custom tailored to fit your device.

The Slate Group asks that if you try the app and have any suggestions or complaints to feel free to contact them at mobile@slate.com.
