Got a Sony Ericsson Xperia phone? Want a cloud-based, online storage locker with more than 50 GB of space? At no cost? Tired of me asking questions? Well, this is your lucky day.
Sony Ericsson announced that every owner of its Android Xperia line of phones can now get 50 GB of free storage from cloud service company Box.net. The deal is open to any customer throughout the globe who has a Sony Xperia X10 or any phone released afterward. Yes, that includes the Arc, Mini, Ray, etc., etc.
The deal works similar to what LG customers recently received. Download the Box.net application from the Android Market and sign-up for an account through the app. It will then recognize that you are on a Sony Ericsson phone and will upgrade your account to 50 GB soon after.
This offer that expires December 31, 2012. The account must be claimed by then, but you will have continued access to the 50 GB account for free as long as you sign-up before the offer expires. New users can get tips for using Box on the company’s blog.
“With people taking more pictures, listening to more music and watching more video on their Xperia smartphone than ever before, especially over the holidays, we wanted to make sure that they had the ability to upload their content to the cloud and share it across multiple devices. Xperia™ and Box® will provide consumers with access to a massive amount of content on the go putting their smartphone at the very heart of their connected lifestyle,”
- Steve Walker, Chief Marketing Officer, Sony Ericsson.
“As more people bring their personal devices in to work to take full advantage of mobile computing, it is essential that they never have to worry about storage limitations. By partnering with Sony Ericsson we are bringing the full power of Box®’s cloud content management and sharing to those users.”
- Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box®
