Box is one of the biggest players in the cloud storage industry, by offering free storage to Android users it plans to acquire new users. With stiff competition from other players in the industry like SkyDrive, Dropbox, SugarSync etc it is not surprising to see these kind of marketing strategies. Dropbox recently offered 5GB of free storage to beta testers.
With the tight integration of SkyDive to Windows 8, and possible launch of Google Drive in the near future it will be interesting to see how these cloud storage providers will compete with each other.
