Cloud storage provider Box.net, whose claim to fame was offering 50GB of lifetime storage to owners of HP’s failed TouchPad even after the fire sale has expanded its offering to include Sony Ericsson’s Xperia line and LG Android models.
All the offer requires is that owners of Â LG Android devices sign up directly from the smartphone from today until March 31st 2012 through the new Android app in order to take advantage of the free 50GB lifetime storage offer. Sony Ericsson Xperia owners will receive the same promotion in the future, with both companies still working out the details of their own lifetime storage promotion.
The cloud storage provider has garnered the most attention for offering a similar promotion on Apple’s iOS family of devices, coinciding with the launch of Apple’s rival iCloud service.
Box.net not only offers cloud storage, but the service also offers real-time collaborative editing through the service with version control and other enterprise features such as offline access, remote access/download and bulk upload support.
