It's almost hard to believe just how fast the "cloud
" has become a part of everyday life. Internet access is become such a norm when it comes to mobile users, that even operators are getting in on the fun. Verizon Wireless has just announced a Cloud product of its own, with a roll-out to begin for phones and tablets in the coming weeks. The secure storage app gives customers a place to back up and access their information. Additionally, as customers use multiple devices, sometimes running on different operating systems, Verizon
Cloud will allow for the transferring of some content between Android
and iOS devices, making it accessible across smartphones, tablets and computers.
Whether customers are looking to save text messages, call logs, contacts, music, multimedia or other files, Verizon Cloud allows for up to 125 GB of storage. Verizon Cloud will initially be available for Android, with iOS devices following soon. Additional operating systems are expected to be supported later this year. Customers utilizing Verizon Cloud will receive 500 MB of storage at no monthly charge, with additional storage coming at a cost.
This is certainly good news for customers, but it's also a smart move for VZW: if they hook you into their cloud ecosystem, it's easier to continue relying on Verizon for each phone upgrade.
