The service works with any device including iOS, Android and Windows 8, and Toshiba is offering all users 10GB of free cloud storage.
Additionally, Storage Place permits large file linking and sharing with recipients beyond the Storage Place network, removing the need for a Storage Place account to view and download content from other Storage Place users.
Available now, new users of Storage Place will receive 10GB of free, trial cloud storage for a 30-day time period. After the trial period, users can subscribe to the service for $39.99 per year.
