Samsung to continue 50GB free Dropbox accounts to Note II and Camera buyers
Samsung have today announced they will continue the partnership with Dropbox, to provide 50GB free Dropbox accounts to Note II and Camera buyers for two years. This is fantastic news as especially with the Camera you will need every bit of it!
The only issue here is, and the same with the Galaxy S III, the 50GB free is only available to new accounts, meaning if you already have a 2GB free account, you must setup a new email address and new Dropbox account, then jump through a further 8 step process to claim the 50GB free.
No one still knows what Samsung and Dropbox are going to do, at the end of the free period either. Presumably it will become a chargeable service at that time, as currently Dropbox only allows up to 18GB free. It also tells us, that presumably, as is with the Galaxy S III, Dropbox will come pre-installed and form part of the initiation process when setting the phone up.
Here’s the full Press Release:
Dropbox Announces Deep Integration with New Samsung Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Note II
First time integration allows users to sync and share photos across all Samsung devices
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dropbox, a free service that lets you bring your documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily, today announced an integration with the recently released Samsung Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Note II. With these integrations, Dropbox users can now enjoy a seamless content syncing experience across all Samsung devices.
Earlier in the year Samsung’s flagship model Galaxy S III as well as the Galaxy tablet range launched with Dropbox embedded. This means when people start their device for the first time they get asked if Dropbox should sync their photos and videos automatically giving the user peace of mind that their precious memories are with them at all times.
“The most important thing to us is to provide our users with the ability to have a seamless experience across the many mobile devices they use and this partnership shows our mutual commitment to offering Samsung users the best possible experience,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox. “These integrations with Samsung’s latest Wi-Fi and 4G enabled camera and Galaxy Note II means Dropbox users can rest assured their photos and videos will be with them anytime, anywhere.”
Through these integrations, users will receive Dropbox out-of-the-box on both the Galaxy Camera and Note II. Additionally, for the first time ever, the Galaxy Note II will automatically sync photos and videos stored in Dropbox with the Gallery application. This means that as soon as the Gallery is opened, users will be able to effortlessly access all their photos already stored in their Dropbox. This gives people a personalized experience as soon as they open the photo and video gallery.
People who purchase the new eligible Samsung Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Note II and complete the Dropbox get started guide (dropbox.com/gs) can get 50 GB free space for two years.
