About a year ago, Box.com announced that it’s offering free 50GB Box Personal accounts to all LG Android devices in the U.S., both tablets and smartphones, running Android 2.1 or higher.
According to the official blog post of the company, the 50GB of extra storage will be on offer until December 31, 2012:
Want to claim your Box 50GB? Just log into Box for Android on your device before December 31, 2012. If you don’t have a Box account yet, be sure to download the app on your LG Android phone or tablet. You’ll have 50GB of free, secure file storage and sharing for the life of your account.
So the obvious question is, will the offer work with the brand new Nexus 4, which happens to be made by LG? The answer is yes: xda-developers senior member ap27 reports that he was able to enable the offer on his Nexus 4 unit and upgrade from 25GB to 50GB of storage after downloading the Box app and logging in.
Taking advantage of deals that offer users more free storage in the cloud is the only way to go with Nexus devices that lack microSD support in order to “upgrade” the memory.
8GB Nexus 4 users will probably be very happy to hear they’ll have even more memory in the cloud to store some of those files that don’t necessarily need to be stored on the phone’s memory, but do need to be within reach at all times.
