Box.net befriends Android, will offer Sony Ericsson Xperia phones 50GB of free cloud storage (update: LG phones too)
How much cloud storage space do you need? 2GB? 5GB? Pah! Box.net scoffs at your puny storage needs, and plan to offer a substantial 50GB of free storage (again) for anyone packing a Sony Ericsson Android phone. While the plans have leaked ahead of schedule, the fine details haven’t been hammered out just yet; the official blog tells us that the company’s “working to provide this offer very soon to all Xperia customers.” When the offer does go live, logging in to (or creating) a Box.net account on any Xperia handset will open the floodgates to 50 gigs of intangible internet storage fo’ life. If this keeps up, it shouldn’t be long till we’re looking at gratis terabytes and are freed of our not-exactly-crippling USB stick addiction, right?
Update: Sony Ericsson’s not the only one getting gratis cloud storage — LG owners can snag 50GB for life, too. PR’s after the break.
