Yes you read that right, VZW is going to be getting into the cloud business. Verizon said on Tuesday that it will deliver cloud-based storage for smartphones and tablets. Customers will receive 500MB of storage FREE, and can get up to 125GB of storage for a price. Verizon is offering four storage plans to customers:
- 500MB: Free
- 25GB: $2.99 per month
- 75GB: $5.99 per month
- 125GB: $9.99 per month
Verizon PR manager David Samberg said in a blog post that "the secure storage app gives customers a place to back up and access their information" and that "additionally, as customers use multiple devices, sometimes running on different operating systems, Verizon Cloud will allow for the transferring of some content between Android and iOS devices, making it accessible across smartphones, tablets and computers."
Big Red's cloud storage will begin rolling out in the coming weeks on Android first, followed by support for iOS devices "soon." Samberg says support for other operating systems will come "later this year."
Question for our readers. Will you, or would you, take advantage of VZW cloud based services?
