Sony has announced in a press release that it has extended its partnership with cloud storage service Box to provide Xperia users with free 50GB online storage for life, provided they sign up for the service before the end of next year. To take advantage of this promotion, users only need to activate their Box account on their Xperia device and they are good to go. The only condition is that they need to do it before December 31st 2013.
While most Xperia devices that are currently available or will be released next year are supported with this offer, some devices, including the Xperia X10 mini and X10 mini pro are unsupported. Also, Xperia devices that are running firmware older than Android 2.1 do not qualify for this promotion. Sony has been offering this promotion from last year and now it has decided to extend it for one more year.
If you want free 50GB storage on Box's cloud service then simply activate your Box account on your Xperia device.
Xperia™ and Box® renew partnership through 2013

Today, we're excited to announce we've extended our partnership with Box until the end of 2013!

Keep an eye on the newsroom over the next few weeks – we'll be sitting down with Box to talk a little more about the service and what we can expect from them through 2013.
