Although Samsung didn’t announce that it would be introducing a cloud-storage service to users at the much-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S-III launch, it has implied that it is certainly interested in exploring such avenues after acquiring cloud-based music service mSpot. Although Samsung hasn’t (at the time of writing) specified its exact intentions for mSpot’s technology, it has noted that it will “represent a key integrated offering on new, mobile hardware”.

The official Press Release of this fascinating deal reads:

“The acquisition will provide a cloud-based entertainment experience of music, video and radio services for users of Samsung devices, while extending mSpot’s cloud and streaming solutions to a broader base of global entertainment fans”.

Currently, mSpot users are able to take advantage of 5Gb of free storage, or pay around $4.00 per  month for a whopping 40Gb of cloud real-estate   – so it will be interesting to watch this deal unfold in the near future in order to see what Samsung offers to its user-base.
