New HTC Android Phones to Have 5GB Free Dropbox Service
HTC has partnered with Dropbox to bring 5GB free storage to users of its latest Android devices.
According to Pocket-Lint, the service will be launched in October. All HTC Sense 3.5 devices in the future will enjoy the free service, which allow users to store files on their phones and have them automatically synced with other devices that have Dropbox installed.
When asked if the service will be available on its Windows Phone 7 devices, HTC commented it is unlikely as Microsoft has the Skydrive service integrated with Windows Phone 7 platform. HTC also did not reveal any details whether existing HTC users will be getting an update to the new HTC Sense 3.5 or Dropbox service.
HTC is the latest mobile phone maker to integrate cloud storage services with its mobile devices. Apple has the iCloud service for its iOS 5 devices and Microsoft has its Skydrive for its Windows Phone 7 devices. The cloud storage services will be useful for people who need to access the files across multiple mobile devices.
