Amazon to offer unlimited space for music [limited time only]

Amazon just delivered some great news for both Android and iOS users. Today, the e-commerce company just announced its plans to enhance its Amazon Cloud Drive and Cloud Player. The company said new improvements will come in three areas: storage plans that include unlimited space for music, free storage for all Amazon MP3 purchases and Cloud Player for Web — which iPad users have been deprived of for months.

As a music fan, the most striking enhancement is unlimited space for music. Amazon is giving its customers this cool opportunity to capitalize on unlimited space if said customer purchases a Cloud Drive storage plan, but for a limited time only. Don’t worry, if you’re the penny pinching type, this offer is available for even the lowest price plan ($20/year for 20 GB of file storage).

For those of you out there who don’t know much of anything about Amazon’s Cloud Drive and Cloud Player, be sure to catch-up. All customers automatically start with 5 GB of free Cloud Drive storage to begin uploading their digital music library. With this latest development Amazon users can really take advantage by indulging in unlimited storage heaven.

Discussing the company’s new plans, Craig Pape Director of Amazon Music said, “Customers are already enjoying Cloud Drive and Cloud Player and now for just $20 a year, customers can get unlimited space for music.”

I admit, this is a pretty gaudy move on the part of Amazon; this without a doubt separates them even further away from the competition when it comes to the Cloud wars. What are your thoughts out there? Are you going to purchase a Cloud Drive to before the limited time offer ends? If not, why?
