Cloud documents, more sharing on deck for upcoming Samsung devices
Softpedia reported Tuesday that Samsung and Dropbox have announced plans to build upon their existing partnership, which integrates the popular cloud storage service into the Korean manufacturer's Android-based devices.
Officially announced in August 2012, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 became the first device to integrate Dropbox directly into the photo and video gallery for automatic uploading of new images or movies.
Apparently the alliance was a success, as the two companies now plan to extend the partnership even further to old and new devices alike.
In addition to extending Dropbox integration to more current devices, Samsung plans to add document storage and additional sharing options to upcoming devices.
"Dropbox and Samsung share a common goal when it comes to connectivity across devices," said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox.
"We believe that the things that matter most to people should be accessible at all times. 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."
The companies have yet to announce which devices have been earmarked for deeper Dropbox integration, or when such products will begin shipping to carriers.
