Android Users Treated To Free 50GB Courtesy of Box

The latest deal to grace the tech marketplace is of the cloud storage service provider, Box, offering 50GB free online storage to Android device users for March. The limited period offer comes with no terms and conditions, and is being viewed as a celebration of new additions as well as updates for Box's Android app.

In order to take advantage of this free storage users must first log on to "Box for Android" in the Android Market, where the user will be automatically upgraded to be eligible for this facility. Providing an additional 45GB for life on the current free Box plan on the Android user's account, this offer will only be available until 23rd March.

However, unpaid users will not be allowed to take part in this exclusive deal and will instead be stuck with the 25MB every file limit - which is currently the lowest file size. To upgrade to 1GB, users will have to pay $10 every month, reported PC World.

Box has updated Android apps to include the latest features such as a new user interface, enhanced features, and most importantly compatibility with Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich.

Android users can now comment on various files, upload more than one file at a time and also allow others to access their files. The service provider even added four new languages to its Android app, consisting of German, French, Italian and also Spanish.
