    I think Flipboard will come for only 1GB RAM devices and it will cost $0.99 or $1.99 in WP.
    Just like other apps.

    Flipboard is a free app on ios and android , I am sure it will be free since windows 8 version is available free of cost and works smoothly

    Blinkfeed is the homescreen with social and other newsfeeds. I don't think that Windows Phone does have something similar as we have the default start screen.
    But as answered Flipboard is a magazine like reader. It will be coming soon.

    Though if you are looking for a news reader then, here they are.

    Moli Player, Angry Birds, Cut The Rope , even WPCentral(LOL!)etc ....are many apps which are free on Android but paid on WP.
    Last time I was searching for Offline news reader app and their isn't a single which is free. On Android the Best Offcial apps are free.
    So, if app is free on Android that doesn't make it free on WP.
    and well, super famous games like Temple Run 2 , Subway Surfer etc... can run on 512MB RAM on other OS but need 1GB in WP.

    So, I don't think Flipboard will be free on WP.
    It's a very costly platform , you have to pay for every single average quality app here.

    Because windows phone developer can't submit unlimited free applications, only 5 apps or games can be published by individua developer for free, they can only submit unlimited applications and games in paid version. Bad for windows phone store and windows phone users.

    I am 99% sure it will be free , they don't even have to work for a windows phone app , its already there , they have to re-code the windows 8 app and it will work on windows phone 8.1 (unified store )

    I always found Blinkfeed to be something which was trying to be more like Live Tiles.

    I hope it's true.
    But what about the hardware requirement.
    Even if it's free it may need 1GB RAM atleast.

    So, I don't think it will a happy ending for 512MB RAM users.

    If that happen I can even predict what will WP users will say.
    Any guess??
    Well they will same as what they are saying now about Official 9GAG app.

    Like - Magnify is better app than Flipboard or something like that.
    It happens all the time.

    blink feed of HTC is a widget that would automatically collect data and update your widgets. however, WP only has tiles that will be updated or dependent with backgrnd updates that would only show photos of new articles.

    one of the best RSS or news app I have used so far is "Weave".
    Im still waiting for Flipboard afficial app

    If you REALLY want blinkfeed. I guess you have to choose bet. Samsung Magazine UI or HTC sense UI.

    Blinkfeed is an app after all, and yes there are some other news readers such as magnify Beta.
    Hopefully Flipboard will be coming with the 8.1 update. Good luck with your 1520 .. I'm about to get one myself.

    4 year old , fine no see how rapidly it is getting in shape ;)
    it will help developers get deeper access to OS , new API and completely new SDK , one can easily create common apps for windows 8.1 and windows phone 8.1
    flipboard is already available on windows , so they are just waiting to update the app for windows phone 8.1 , resulting in delay

    9GAG is also not a game yet it need 1GB RAM, why?

    Anything is possible on WP.
    I can only hope that MS can't ditch 512MB RAM users like app developers.
