New HP TouchPad owners go get your free 50GB of lifetime cloud storage

Summary: New HP TouchPad owners need to hurry and grab the free 50GB of cloud storage available for all buyers. The box.net account is free for life, a great value.

New HP TouchPad owners, and there seems to be quite a few of them at those bargain basement prices, may not be aware that HP has a partnership with cloud storage provider box.net for a free account. The free storage account is still being honored currently, as several have verified to me they signed up for new accounts yesterday.

This is significant as the free accounts offer 50GB of cloud storage at box.net for life. This account normally costs $20 per month so it is a significant benefit that shouldn't be overlooked. There is no information from HP nor box.net if this offer will continue given the cancellation of the TouchPad product line so it would be prudent to grab the free account quickly. There is a free Box app in the App Catalog to interface easily with the cloud storage on the TouchPad. The account must be activated from the TouchPad app, but can be used through any web browser after it is live.

That $99 TouchPad just became a much better deal with that free lifetime cloud storage. The free storage is accessible for the life of the box.net account.

    So, that means in just 5 months my discount touchpad pays for itself ??? Whoo hoo !!! Makes it that much harder for those who insist "it's still not worth it."

    Sugarsync is $9.99 for a 60 GB/Month - oh right - I'm sure there isn't a sugarsync app for the Touchpad!

      @davidsmi Well that's ok, because the box.net account is FREE FOREVER. I'm glad you got that extra 10GB for your $10 though. Good for you.

    Already been there, done that. Even created a persistant share in Windows Explorer to facilitate that use! (<a href="https://www.box.net/dav" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">https://www.box.net/dav</a>)

    Words can not express my appreciation for the info that you have so willingly shared related to the HP Touchpad. I installed Pre ware yesterday per your instructions and it was just as easy as you described. Just got the 50GB of free cloud storage which I heard about but had forgotten in the excitement of snagging the 32GB TP. Thanks again and continue your excellent post.

  • Creating box.net account for TouchPad

    Could not create Box account from the TouchPad. Had to create free 5GB account via browser on PC. Then first time logging in via TouchPAd, was automatically upgraded to 50GB. Cool!

  • it may not be truly 50gig!!

    After reading this article i went and created an account using my touchpad. However, when i login to their website to upload files, i noticed in the account settings page that the space is only 5GB (lite). It also says space used (191MB/50gig). So, i am not so sure that we get 50gig of storage space for life!!! maybe the author needs to double check please?

    5GB is the free personal account, 25MB file size limit

    These have 1GB file size limit:
    $ 9.99 is the 25GB version for personal use
    $19.99 is the 50GB version for personal use


    See personal account have a max 50GB. so i guess thats why it still showing 191MB/50GB even if 5GB lite account. Basically you got the stantard free account and not the HP offer

    I called box.net today & confirmed by doing box.net via TP, it is 50GBfree. What I didn't know is u can only get their app via itunes. not sure if I like that, but still dwnld itunes app. It saves as a .exe file, but can't be opened on my TP (can't open MIME or similar). Support case opened. Anyone else have similar exper?
