Samsung rumoured to be launching S-Cloud

We think it's fair to say that the Galaxy S III isn't going to be the only launch at the upcoming Samsung event in London. It now looks like S-Cloud will be one of the supporting cast.

What is S-Cloud, you ask? Well, the clue is in the name. A report from Maeil Business in Korea cites a 'Samsung Electronics SW Consolidation Plan', which in turn points to a cloud-based storage system called S-Cloud. That same report points to an unveiling at the Samsung event.

Detail is still a little thing on the ground, although the report indicates that S-Cloud is similar to Apple's iCloud but without any limitations on the type of content you can upload to it. On top of that, S-Cloud will offer access to popular TV shows, movies, and music, both free and paid content, and capacity is said to be 'more than 5GB'.

The report also indicates that Samsung delayed the service after problems finding a suitable cloud storage partner. However, the manufacturer has now partnered with Microsoft for a global rollout of the service. Not just a smartphone feature, but S-Cloud should be a big selling point when the next generation of Samsung smartphones roll out.
