Box.net offering 50GB Free Cloud Storage to TouchPad Owners 35
If you had a chance to catch the latest TouchPad Hands-on Demo at Walmart (and you really should if you haven't), you might have noticed something pretty cool near the end of the video. Beneath the glare of the overhead lighting, we were given a little treat when user rbrown530 opened up the Box.net app. A quick startup video gives a demonstration of what the app can do (as an alternative to Dropbox and ZumoDrive) and then displays the information from the image taken above: 50 GB of Free cloud storage for all TouchPad owners through Box.net.
For a Wifi only device that is being touted as the "Better than Number 1" web-based tablet, having 50 GB of free cloud storage provided by a launch partner is a solid win for HP (and for early buyers). 50 GB through Box.net would normally cost $20/month, though we aren't entirely sure how long this offer will last or for how many months you'll be able to use the 50GB of storage. If we were to take a guess, we'd say that the offer will be good for a few months, as long as you're using the TouchPad in conjunction with the service, and that's a big deal.
