Samsung Galaxy S3 owners to get free 50GB of Dropbox storage
Say what you want about the Samsung Galaxy S3. Perhaps you’re disappointed about not seeing a 12MP camera sensor on the phone or how the design of the Galaxy S3 isn’t the one you envisioned in your dreams. But if there’s one thing that we can all probably agree on is that owners of Galaxy S3 probably will not be encountering any lack of storage problem.
In case you don’t know it yet, Samsung Galaxy S3 comes in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models. On top of that, the phone also has a microSD card slot, which allows you to add 64GB more into the storage equation. If the combined 128GB storage of the Galaxy S3 still isn’t enough, you’ll be pleased to know that Samsung has partnered with Dropbox to offer owners of the superphone an additional 50GB cloud storage. All you have to do is register your phone after making the purchase.
Although the free 50GB storage space on Dropbox won’t be up forever since it does come with an expiry date, it’s safe to say you don’t have to worry about storage space for two years. Plus, Samsung can gloat that it offers bigger free cloud storage than HTC.
Interestingly, Dropbox announced yesterday that they have inked a deal with Samsung to have the Dropbox app preloaded on future Samsung’s smartphones and tablets. So while the Samsung Galaxy S3 might be the first to take advantage of the partnership, future Android tablets and smartphones from Sammy might also get the free storage – perhaps at a smaller capacity.
Will this persuade you even more to get the Samsung Galaxy S3 when it’s out?
