Today’s mobile devices are not only expensive, they also often contain sensitive data and precious photos. Keeping our phones safe and out of the wrong hands is certainly important, and that’s why there are quite…
The partnership between Samsung and Dropbox started with the Galaxy S3, the first smartphone from Sammy that comes with a free 50GB online storage courtesy of the cloud company. With the app seemingly becoming a permanent fixture on Samsung’s phones and tablets, Dropbox has announced that its cloud service will be integrated into more Samsung devices.
The official announcement, which was made yesterday, means that Dropbox will make its way to Samsung PCs and smart cameras starting from March 2013.
“Extending our successful relationship with Samsung from mobile phones to cameras gives users more opportunities to access and share photos, videos and documents, regardless of what device they are on,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Dropbox Head of Mobile Business Development.
Dropbox reached 100 million users back in November. The expanded availability of the cloud service on various Samsung devices will definitely help it gain more users and stay ahead of the competition.
Dropbox to be embedded on new Samsung GALAXY Grand and Samsung SMART CAMERAs
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – January 7, 2013 – Dropbox, a free service that lets you bring your documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily, today announced a deep integration with several new Samsung devices, including the upcoming Samsung GALAXY Grand smartphone and SMART CAMERAs .
This marks the next step in the partnership between Dropbox and Samsung, which began in 2012 with Dropbox integrations on the Samsung devices, including Samsung GALAXY S III, Samsung GALAXY Note II, and Samsung GALAXY Camera.
“Dropbox and Samsung share a common goal when it comes to connectivity across devices. We believe that the things that matter most to people should be accessible at all times,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox. “Extending our successful relationship with Samsung from mobile phones to cameras gives users more opportunities to access and share photos, videos and documents, regardless of what device they are on.”
Beginning in March 2013, Dropbox will also be integrated on Samsung PCs and a number of Samsung SMART CAMERAs being released throughout 2013.
The GALAXY Note II was the first Samsung device to launch with Dropbox deeply integrated in the photo and video gallery. Every photo or video users take on their Samsung device will be automatically uploaded to their Dropbox folder. This eliminates the need to hook up cables or remove SD cards to transfer photos to a PC, making it even easier to access and share content across devices and furthering Dropbox's mission of simplifying people's lives.
