Dropbox has recently announced a deep integration with the recently released Samsung Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Note II. With these integrations, Dropbox users can now avail a seamless content syncing experience across all Samsung devices.
Earlier in the year, Samsung’s flagship model Galaxy S III as well as the Galaxy tablet range were launched with Dropbox embedded. This means when people start their device for the first time, they get asked if Dropbox should sync their photos and videos automatically.
Dropbox to be tightly woven into these new devices
“The most important thing to us is to provide our users with the ability to have a seamless experience across the many mobile devices they use and this partnership shows our mutual commitment to offering Samsung users the best experience available on the market,” said Lars Fjeldsoe-Nielsen, Head of Mobile Business Development at Dropbox. “These integrations with Samsung’s latest Wi-Fi and 4G enabled camera and Galaxy Note II means Dropbox users can rest assured their photos and videos will be with them anytime, anywhere.”
Through these integrations, users will receive Dropbox out-of-the-box on both the Galaxy Camera and Note II. Additionally, the Galaxy Note II will include a deep integration through which photos and videos stored in Dropbox are automatically synced with the Gallery application. This means that as soon as the Gallery is opened, users will experience easy access to all their photos already stored in their Dropbox. The developers claim that this can help in giving people a personalised experience as soon as they open the photo and video gallery.
People who purchase the new eligible Samsung Galaxy Camera and Galaxy Note II and complete the Dropbox get started guide can get 50GB free space for two years.
For those who are in the dark about the Galaxy Note II, here is a quick brief on the recently announced smartphone. Samsung had released the Galaxy Note last year and it was a very successful smartphone. Building up on its sucesss, the brand has taken the wraps off the Samsung Galaxy Note II, a smartphone with a similar form factor but with bumped up specifications. Samsung has thrown in a new feature that can potentially change the way mobile phones are used. Apart from the facts that it features the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) OS out of the box, and is powered by a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, the major talking point about the Galaxy Note II is that it features an all-new Air View feature. Samsung states that Air View allows users to hover with the S Pen over an email, S Planner, image gallery, or video to preview the content without having to open it. This feature enables users to quickly search and see more information in one view without screen transitions.
