HTC and Google are offering free Google Drive storage for two years - 50 GB for HTC One Max and 25 GB for HTC One as well as other HTC Sense 5+ supporting models.
It would seem the war on free cloud storage has begun and Google is trying to take the lead passing Dropbox on the inside lane. The popular search giant is now offering, for eligible HTC devices (primarily the One and One Max) the ability to snatch a whopping 25-50 GB’s of space on Google Drive for two years.
Google knows that everybody loves more free storage space, so they have tripled the amount of free cloud-based storage they offer on Google Drive from 5GB to 15GB. Kind of. Previously, Google Drive offered 5GB of storage, and Gmail offered 10GB.
If you’re trying to choose between this year’s powerful options for your latest device, perhaps HTC can sway you with its latest addition to its HTC Advantage program. Now, whenever you purchase an HTC One M8, Max, or Remix, you will get 100 GB of Google Drive storage for free. Upon activating the device, simply open the preloaded Google Drive app and press redeem.
If you thought Google’s 15GB of combined free storage for Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos was a good deal, check out Flickr. They not only released a new app, but to entice you to start using the service, they are offering 1-terabyte of free space for both photos and videos.
Google has announced a change to Google Apps for Business — ending the free version of the product, offering only its Premium version which costs $50 per user per year, regardless of the size of the company. The change was announced on Google’s Official Enterprise blog.
Last week Google announced they were re-introducing their Google Chromebook laptop. Today the device appeared in the Google Play Store with a price of $249. Interested buyers can sign up to be notified when it is ready for purchase, which is expected to be in only a few days.
The Chromebook is powered by a dual-core Exynos processor, 2GB of RAM, a 16GB SSD, and sports an 11.6-inch HD display.
