We’ve all heard the phrase, “Too little, too late,” that is unless you’re LG, who apparently didn’t learn that lesson. The Korean electronics company has decide to launch its very own cloud storage service, which they say will be targeted to those who would use it for backing up pictures, videos, music and more (gee, that sounds unique).
Despite the fact that customers already have several cloud storage options, like Dropbox, Sugarsync, Google Drive, iCloud, Amazon Cloud Drive, Box and Microsoft’s SkyDrive, LG apparently thinks they need yet another option. LG’s service will offer the same 5GB of free storage as Google Drive, but users of an LG smartphone or SmartTV will get an extra 50GB free (for a limited time). LG claims their service is different than the rest, instead of downloading content to another platform first, their service actually “streams” it and it also works with 3D content.
If you’re interested in LG’s new offering, the service will be going live on May 1st in South Korea and select locations within the United States.
