As if owning the latest Google flagship Android smartphone wasn’t enough, owners of the Google Nexus 4 are apparently included in the promotion announced last year by Box, an online cloud storage service.
In November 2011, Box announced that it would be giving all LG phone and tablet owners in the US running Android 2.1 and higher a whopping free 50 GB in cloud storage space:
“We want to make it incredibly easy for you to share, manage and access important content from absolutely anywhere. And to ensure that storage limitations never get in the way of your sharing, we’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with LG to offer free 50GB Box Personal accounts on all LG phones and tablets in the U.S. running Android OS 2.1 and above (with display resolution of 320×480 or higher).”
According to Box, the offer is open until December 31, 2012 and LG-developed Google Nexus 4 owners are finding out that their device is still entitled to the promo. User ap27 from the XDA Forums was one of the first to share this great bit of news to other Google Nexus 4 owners, saying that he immediately got upgraded to 50 GB as soon as he downloaded the Box app and signed in on his new device.
The Box promos is definitely a boon to Google Nexus 4 owners, especially those with the 8 GB version, as its a way for them to go around the device’s lack of microSD support. Box could be a great alternative for storing files that aren’t really something you need quick access to.
Again, the promo only lasts until the end of the year so be sure to take advantage of it as soon as you unbox your Google Nexus 4!
