Box free 50GB for Android

Seems Box are offering free 50GB data for Android users who sign up to their updated app:

http://www.androidcentral.com/box-an...-free-everyone

Market link:

https://market.android.com/details?i....android&hl=en

Seems this is a limited time offer ending on 23 March. I haven't used Box.net before and I note that for free users this doesn't include desktop sync, but I guess 50GB worth of free cloud storage isn't that bad a deal.

Also valid for iPhone/iPad, TouchPad, and Playbook users... basically anyone.

Given there is no free desktop sync, it's pretty useless. I'm up to 8.5GB on my Dropbox account now.

Was under the impression the iOS promo ended sometime in December 2011.

Some FAQ's including ongoing 50GB promotions:

You can access it as a webdav. I have 30 gigs of old photos that I may backup there.

You can also mount it as a network drive. Detailed instructions here.

Interesting. I'll have to give this a look.
I think for the recent 5GB promo dropbox had was quite good.
