The Traveling Cloud - 'Net Briefs (Dec. '12)

Posted on 10.31.2012

With the Kindle Fire set to launch in Europe, Amazon is taking its Cloud Drive to the continent. Cloud Drive, for the uninitiated, is Amazon’s virtual locker that allows customers to store their digital content (e.g. photos, music, video and documents) in the cloud to access on their tablets or computers. So far, it’s come to Italy, Spain, Germany, France and the U.K. Like in the U.S., users will get five free GB of storage just for signing up, with paid plans starting at £6 or €8 a year for 20GB (with increasing plans following). And to throw a bone to U.S. users, Amazon has lowered prices back home, with the lowest tier plan selling for $10 a year for 20GB.
