Rumors that Samsung would announce S-Cloud (a cloud storage solution) at their S3 launch proved to be unfounded, and instead they announced that they are offering 2 years of 50GB free Dropbox storage with the device.
However they have just announced that they have acquired the cloud music locker/streaming service mSpot.
mSpot not only allows users to upload their own music, but also offers radio and movie rentals.
Samsung said in their official announcement, “The acquisition will provide a cloud-based entertainment experience of music, video and radio services for users of Samsung devices, while extending mSpot’s cloud and streaming solutions to a broader base of global entertainment fans. The combination will extend mSpot’s top class cloud and streaming services while further enhancing Samsung’s mobile and tablet device entertainment offerings. mSpot’s entertainment services will be a key integrated offering on newly announced Samsung mobile devices.”
As yet there is still no information on how much Samsung paid or how long it will take for them to start including mSpot with their devices.
