If you’re on the lookout of a new Android phone from a brand called HTC, then this is the right time to get yourself one. HTC has teamed up with DropBox to provide free cloud storage to anyone who purchases a new device that’s running their new Sense UI 3.5.
Dropbox, is an online cloud storage provider that lets you store data on the cloud including photos, videos, files and other data. Normally, when you sign up for a free account, you get about 2 GB of free storage space. Now, if you plan on buying one of HTC’s new Android phones running Sense 3.5 UI, you’ll get another 3GB of storage on top of that. So that totals to about 5 GB of cloud storage to save your important files and data.
Currently, the two HTC phones that are running the new Sense 3.5 are HTC Rhyme and the Sensation XE. So, unless new phones will be announced, you don’t really have much of a choice. It’s actually a good idea to move to Cloud storage, but it does come with its problems. For example, if you want to check some files that are stored online, you’d have to get access to a working internet connection.
All major companies are trying to move to the cloud storage era. For example, Apple has iCloud, which was launched at the WWDC 2011 and is a splendid way to store data. Microsoft has Skydrive and many others are also teaming up with Cloud services such as Box.net etc.
So, if you want some extra storage on the cloud that you want to boast about, then this deal is pretty good. iOS 5 will also have deep iCloud integration, which means it’s also good if you wait for the iPhone 5.
