DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/lvg834/pricing_trends) has announced the addition of the "Pricing Trends for Bundled and Unbundled Mobile Cloud Storage" report to their offering.
This new subscription service provides the Mobile Cloud Storage products and pricing offered by key MNOs around the world - with the main focus on the European region.
Mobile Cloud Storage services are provided by mobile operators which provide hosted virtual storage services via the internet which are accessed via a dedicated web portal for the user.
The arrival of Mobile Cloud Storage has coincided with the rapid adoption of Smartphone devices worldwide now being used to access and store a wide range of content such as photos, video, music and e-mail applications.
Additionally if the user stores his applications in the MNO's cloud there is a prospect of greater stickiness as the user will be reluctant to change his MNO provider if it means changing the storage provider as well.
MNOs either bundle a Mobile Cloud Storage service in with an existing high end Smartphone device or else charge for a stand-alone Mobile Cloud Storage service.
In providing cloud storage services the MNO is following a number of digital content providers, telecoms operators, ISPs and hosting providers in offering services in the cloud for both the consumer and the enterprise segments.
In the MNOs case the focus is simply on using Mobile Cloud Storage for the mobile device, although - depending on the product - content can be stored from PC or Mac as well as from the mobile device.
In the first edition of the Mobile Cloud Storage Tracker and Analysis subscription service the author provides analysis of some 50 bundled mobile cloud storage offers (from 20 MNOs) and some 66 stand-alone mobile cloud storage offers (from 22 MNOs).
The key MNO providers of Mobile Cloud Storage in Europe are included along with selected operators from around the world (including some key MNOs from the Asia Pacific and North American regions). Altogether the survey includes some 42 MNOs with some 116 mobile cloud storage offers in total.
Some 100 mobile cloud storage offers surveyed are in Europe, Asia Pacific and North America (the USA).
