HTC Giving All New Phone Buyers 5GB of DropBox for FREE!

Smartphone maker HTC has unveiled a plan with cloud storage company Dropbox to give 5GB of free cloud storage to new HTC Android phone owners. According to reports, the deal is tied to phones using HTC’s new ‘Sense 3.5’ UI overlay.

Drop Box gives users 2GB for free, so this is an extra 150% for free – plus HTC will pre-load the DropBox app on all new phones.

This appears to be yet another reaction to Apple’s iCloud service, which offers 5GB free storage to anyone using an iOS 5 device. Microsoft offers 25GB of SkyDrive storage to Windows Phone users.

As of right now the offer is limited to Android phones, starting with the upcoming HTC Rhyme. It is unclear if they will include Windows Phone devices due to Windows SkyDrive. Also, as of now there are no plans to broaden the offer to older HTC Sense users, but that can change at any time in the future.

What do you think? Is an added 3GB of free storage enough to entice you to grab a new HTC phone?
