CLOUD STORAGE VENDOR Box has announced that owners of LG devices can have 50GB of online storage for free.

Box and LG have teamed up to offer users of both phones and tablets a considerable amount of storage. To put it in perspective, Box generally offers 5GB free, which is 10 times less than this deal.

Box said, "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 running Android OS 2.1 and above."

The version limitation will have almost no effect, since most of LG's devices are running Android 2.2 Froyo or Android 2.3 Gingerbread. There's no catch and all you have to do to grab the deal is download and log into Box on an LG device before 31 March 2012.

The service allows users to upload files such as photos and documents to either keep files backed up or free up space on a device. Users can download files for offline viewing and upload in bulk.

Box also warned, "Sony Ericsson mistakenly posted a promo offering Xperia owners 50GB [of] free storage via the Box for Android mobile app. This offer is not active."

Not to be biased, but the same 50GB is available for Apple's Igadgets, however the deal runs out tomorrow at midnight. µ
