Dropbox and Samsung have proved that their affair is not a short-termed one, as they announced new integration of the cloud storage service on existing Samsung devices under the arc-lights at CES 2013.
Forthcoming Samsung products like smartphones and cameras, including the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Grand smartphone and Smart Cameras, will feature the cloud app out of the box. This marks the next step in the partnership between Dropbox and Samsung, which began in 2012 with Dropbox integrations on the Samsung devices including Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note II and Samsung Galaxy Camera.
Samsung and Dropbox take their relationship one step ahead
Beginning in March 2013, Dropbox will also be integrated into Samsung PCs and a number of Samsung Smart Cameras being released throughout 2013. The 2013 era PCs will conveniently feature the cloud app storage feature straight out of the box.
The Galaxy Note II was the first Samsung device to launch with Dropbox deeply integrated in the photo and video gallery. Every photo or video users take on their Samsung device will be automatically uploaded to their Dropbox folder.
“Dropbox and Samsung share a common goal when it comes to connectivity across devices. We believe that the things that matter most to people should be accessible at all times,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox, explaining the company’s relationship with the Korean electronic giants. “Extending our successful relationship with Samsung from mobile phones to cameras gives users more opportunities to access and share photos, videos and documents, regardless of what device they are on.”
Dropbox is one of the most popularly used cloud storage apps that makes photos, videos and documents stored on it accessible from multiple devices. Most Android devices feature this app out of the box along with extra space storage.
Even though complete details of the integration were not fully available, Samsung clearly seems to be putting its focus on sharing and cloud storage this year.
