Putting the HTC/Dropbox collaboration in the shade, Box.net have formed a partnership with LG which offers users of LG mobile devices an astonishing 50GB of free storage. Best of all, it isn't limited to new devices.
As you can see from the image, my trusty Optimus 2X qualified for the offer. To take advantage, head over to the Market and download the Box.net application for Android 2.1 and above (download links below) and register for a new account within the app. Then hey presto, 50GB of storage completely free.
In addition, the app itself received an update today with a couple of interesting additions. It now allows files to be downloaded from your cloud storage to your device, multi-file uploading and auto updating of files edited locally within apps such as Quickoffice.
For anyone not familiar with Box, it is a little different to Dropbox in its execution which partly comes from its more business focussed nature. Desktop sync is not available in free accounts, that sets you back $15 a month. The web access is fine though, and for a free 50GB storage locker, it's worth signing up just for the hell of it. The offer is extended through until March 21st 2012 so remember this if you're going out to purchase a Nitro HD or anything else LG may have on the horizon.
