Amazon cloud Drive Announced….

Amazon on Tuesday launched cloud Drive and Cloud Player for Web and Android—
3 Services that allow you to store music in a repository and play on the Web and smartphones.
Among the key points:
  • You can upload your library.
  • Anyone that bought an Amazon MP3 can get 20GB for free.
  • Mac and PC compatible.
  • On Android, the Cloud Player is an update to the Amazon MP3 app.
  • Everyone starts with 5GB of Cloud Drive storage.
  • Cloud Drive uses Amazon Web Services S3.
  • Plans start at 20GB for $20 a year and basically run $1 a year per GB.
