Amazon Cloud DriveThis isn’t by any means the first time we’ve seen a cloud storage provider offer up a special offer, in fact it seems like the cool thing to do these days. With that in mind, it’s worth noting that Amazon is throwing its hat into the proverbial free cloud storage offer with 50GB of storage with the purchase of over 100 carrier-branded Android smartphones. The company says “select” smartphones, but it looks to be just about every phone we were coming across. Taking advantage of the offer is very simple, just select the phone, purchase and watch the free storage appear within 10 days. The 50GB of storage will be added on top of the already available 5GB of free space included with every purchase.
