Hello,
I got 50GB Box.com cloud space when I bought my HP Touchpad with file size limit 1GB. I was uploading some files today and got surprised that my total space went up by 50GB (Total 100gb) with file size limit increased from 1GB to 5GB.

Since so many cloud services are available these days and people have many options. I use box.com and dropbox a lot so it is great for me.

I just wanted to give information to everyone so they can also enjoy 5gb file size limit.

Please be easy on me if you did not find this deal great.

Are you sure you didn't pay for it somehow?

I just checked my account and it is still 50GB max. I would have to pay to upgrade to 100GB with 5GB max file size.

Not a promotion if you don't know how or why you have the extra space. TD.

why not find someone with a touchpad that 'still boots WebOS' and have them create you a Box account for the 50gb? curious if that still works...

I am still at 50GB from my original TP purchase but haven't gone onto WebOS since the Cyanogen ROMS came out.
