LG rolls out its own LG Cloud services today
It seems that Microsoft, Apple, Google have set the trend with their cloud based services and now LG has hopped on board as well with LG Cloud, just four days before the purported launch of fellow Korean company Samsung’s own cloud service. LG Cloud offers 5GB of free space as standard, while owners of LG’s Smart TVs or smartphones will get 50GB free for six months. It will be push content between your devices. The files will be compressed for the medium, so high definition images on your TV will be slimmed down a bit to save prevent you from exceeding your phones data cap.
Now don’t get too excited just yet folks. The free beta will roll out in South Korea and the United States first starting today, with a global roll-out penciled in for next year. Free users will start of with 2GB of storage but the number will increase to 5GB with the purchase of an LG product — tv, computer, mobile phone or tablet. It’s also worth noting that LG has come forth and said they will stay exclusively with Android for the foreseeable future. It’s sales with Windows Phone have been anything but stellar.
There is no doubt that each technology giant is looking to offer the same services in hope to keep its customers in their camp and LG and Samsung will the newest to the forum.
