OneDrive on Windows Phone

Microsoft are putting the pressure on cloud storage providers like Dropbox by upping the amount of free storage it gives away. Up till now OneDrive’s free service gave you 7GB or storage out of the box but that has now been updated to 15GB of cloud storage. Dropbox offers 2GB for free and you can add more via camera sharing options and inviting other users (somehow I managed to get 53GB for free) but Microsoft make it very simple by offering 15GB out of the box.

Office 365 subscribers will get 1TB of storage as part of their subscription.

Details from the OneDrive bog:

OneDrive will come with 15 GB for free (up from 7 GB)

Our data tells us that 3 out of 4 people have less than 15 GB of files stored on their PC. Factoring in what they may also have stored on other devices, we believe providing 15 GB for free right out of the gate – with no hoops to jump through – will make it much easier for people to have their documents, videos, and photos available in one place.
