Shortly after Sony Ericsson announced its partnership with Box.net to bring Xperia owners 50GB of free cloud storage, Korean handset manufacturer LG promised the same deal for its customers.
Apparently, LG and Box.net teamed up as well to offer 50 GB of free cloud storage via Box for Android on all LG Android mobile phones.
Those who own an LG smartphone and wish to take advantage of LG’s promotional offer, are required to sign up for an account with Box through their LG Android smarthones.
However, the current deal runs through March 31, 2012 and offers LG fans the benefits of free, secure cloud storage and sharing for the lifetime of the account.
“With 50GB of free cloud storage from Box combined with world-class LG Android mobile devices, LG users are provided with cloud computing capabilities to support secure content management, collaboration and productivity on the move,” said Ki S. Kim, corporate vice president and head of Global Enterprise Mobility Solutions (B2B) at LG Electronics.
According to LG, the promotion is compatible with all LG devices that run Android 2.1 operating system and up. It is also worth mentioning that only devices with display resolution 320 x 480 or higher are eligible for the deal.
Unfortunately, LG Mobile mentions that promotion is only available in the United States. Hopefully, the offer will be extended to other countries in the near future.
It has become a trend for handset manufacturers to offer free cloud storage in order to attract more customers. HTC is also among the companies that introduced such a deal back in October. However, the Taiwanese handset maker promised only 5GB of free storage via Dropbox.
“We will continue to set the standard in the enterprise mobility space by introducing innovative, cutting-edge solutions to enhance the mobile experience of enterprise users,” concluded Kim.
