Expanding its collaboration on Samsung’s Smart TVs, cloud-synchronisation service SugarSync will now be preloaded on all Galaxy devices, starting with the company’s flagship smartphone — the Galaxy S III.

Granted, the Galaxy S III already provides 50GB of free Dropbox storage, but SugarSync aims to incorporate more of a media feel with its service, embedding SugarSync Cloud into Samsung’s AllShare Play service and allowing users to sync their media files between their TV, desktop, smartphone and tablet.

Each new SugarSync user gets 5GB free, providing Galaxy S III owners with at least 55GB of Cloud storage with Dropbox included. However, the latter is not embedded within Samsung’s Smart TVs and Dropbox is limited to just the Galaxy S III, making the case for users to take advantage of SugarSync’s Cloud if they own a Samsung connected TV and mobile device.

For SugarSync, it’s the latest in a long list of partnerships it has struck with technology companies, including Lenovo, Fujitsu and France-Telecom (Orange).

Samsung will integrate SugarSync all of its new mobile devices that feature its AllShare Play service, meaning the cloud-syncing company is certain to see a huge influx of users in the coming months.
