50GB free Box.net storage for Xperia and LG owners

50GB free Box.net storage for Xperia and LG ownersBack in September we heard that HTC owners with Sense 3.5 would be entitled to 5GB of free Dropbox storage, which is fairly generous considering the default for you and me is 2GB.

Now we’re hearing that Sony Ericsson Xperia and LG owners will get ten times that courtesy of Box.net. That’s right, 50GB of free storage.

The offer was initially reported as an exclusive for Sony Ericsson Xperia peeps, however it's now been extended to those who've opted to back Lucky Goldstar.

For LG peeps, all you need is a handset with Android 2.1 (Eclair) or higher, and a minimum resolution of 320x480. The 50GB of free Box.net storage is available now.

However, Xperia owners will have to wait a bit. A statement from Sony Ericsson explains: “On Monday afternoon, we mistakenly posted a promo offering Xperia owners 50GB of free storage via the Box for Android mobile app. While we’re really excited about working with Box down the road, this offer is not active today.

“We are in the midst of finalising the details of this promotion and are working to provide this offer very soon to all Xperia customers so stay tuned!”

Ah well, you can hardly complain when it’s bloomin’ free. Good stuff.

I got the free 50GB with my HP Touchpad but it was useless... unless you pay to upgrade your account, you have to upload one file at a time (i.e. can't drag and drop a folder) and they are quite restrictive with the file size too... defeats the point for me. Much prefer 2GB free with dropbox with much better functionality than 50GB that is virtually useless...

Box.net did a similar promotion for Apple devices.

Unfortunately Box.net charge for additional services which Dropbox gives for free (such as desktop file sync). I'm staying with Dropbox.

The promotion is still valid for iOS, well till tomorrow, but like you say it is a little limited when compared to dropbox

I got the 50gb with my TouchPad too, as has been said before it's very limited in functionality without paying to use it...
