Amazon introduced a new service called Cloud Drive. Cloud Drive acts as a personal cloud based server. That means you store your music, videos, documents on the web and listen to/watch/use it via downloads/streaming. You get 5 GB of storage for free and can buy more if you need it.
To quote Amazon:
Amazon Cloud Drive is your hard drive in the cloud. Store your music, videos, photos, and documents on Amazon’s secure servers. All you need is a web browser to upload, download, and access your files from any computer.
Now what seems really interesting is that Cloud Drive is connected to the Cloud Player, an Android app. There is no Cloud Player on iOS. There is no Windows Phone version. It’s all about Android. Last week they launched an app store for Android. Look out for video and other content next.
Amazon is clearly working hard to position itself as the go to company for content on Droids. And Google better watch out because Amazon has the secret sauce to make it all work great – our credit card numbers on file ready for one click purchases.
Let the Droid Content war begin.
