50 GB Free DropBox offer doesn’t stand for Galaxy S3 from AT&T

During the launch of Samsung Galaxy S3 in London, it was announced that the device would come with a free DropBox 50 GB storage for two years. However, even though it was not mentioned for the US consumers, generally it was assumed to be true for the US market as well. But it seems that US devices would not be eligible for this offer since according to the DropBox customer support page, some carriers have opted out of the promotion that would be applied on the all the devices otherwise. Among these carriers AT&T is also included, one of the major US carriers.
 
Previously HTC also announced 25 GB of free DropBox memory for its HTC One phones, and Samsung’s 50 GB storage is double that amount. However, since AT&T and has opted out, many US consumers would have to face the disappointment. The reason for such a decision has not been made clear by the carrier, although it is possible that the carrier might be planning its own Cloud storage offer. As for the Galaxy S3 devices for the European market, they would come with free storage that would amount to as much as 66 GB. To get the 48 GB of extra storage beyond the average storage of the device, users would need to sing up for DropBox via the pre-loaded app on Galaxy S3.
 
At present, Galaxy S3 can be considered the most technically advanced device in the market. Technical specs of the device include a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 2 GB of RAM memory, 8 mega pixel rare and camera along with a 1.9 mega pixel front end camera, and 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 processor. The phone would have support for the 4G LTE networks for all the carriers offering it.
 
Other than these usual technical specs, there would also be some fine cutting edge features on the device. For example, it would come with S Voice which is similar to the voice assistant of iPhone 4S, Siri. Besides, the front facing camera would constantly monitor the eye movement of the user in order to remain active according to the activity of the user. Other important features include All Share Play, Group Cast and Share Shot allowing advanced sharing and editing of the photos.
