    Default BB10 feature idea: deep integration of cloud storage

    Have a (or more than one) Dropbox, Box, Skydrive, Sugarsync, Google docs account?

    Ideally, all of these cloud storage solutions would be baked into the OS, similar to how you "add email account" in the Settings menu, you'd be able to "add cloud storage".

    With this feature idea, any place you would have a saveas/open, the cloud storage folder would appear alongside internal storage + SD card (if they do go with SD card in BB10 devices).

    I like the idea and would lend to the whole "unified inbox" idea. Though, I though RIM bought a cloud storage service a few years back? I remember reading something about them not too long ago but wouldn't they try to provide their own service and integrate that into the OS?

    Default BB10 feature idea: deep integration of cloud storage

    I expect they'll be including some kind of BB branded cloud storage in the future. But they're going to need to allow support for the myriad of other cloud solutions that people will already have bought into.

    Also, whatever BB branded cloud solution they come up with, is going to need a desktop sync component as well.

    It's called BBM Cloud, everything cloud related will be stored through BBM servers and accessible by the desktop BBM app coming. This is what they're testing internally apparently, read it on several sites. Still a rumour but would be awesome.

    I hope so. I have 16 GB of free Dropbox storage that I use daily.

    Great idea, for sure. I'd love to get more and easier use out of the 50GB Box.net account that came with my PlayBook. I hope RIM brings it to fruition as others in the thread have indicated. In fact, I think a BB cloud offering will be something buyers will look for when comparing BB10 devices against other options. Now that WindowsPhone8 is pushing its compatibility with SkyDrive (and offering a free 7GB account with each WP8 device), I think people expect some type of cloud service as part of their smartphone's ecosystem.

    What confidential stuff do people put in the cloud? That is not prudent.

    You wouldn't believe the type of documents people share through public/free cloud services. Financial statements, loan applications, employment verification, etc... Although the services are probably secure and data may get encrypted during transmission, but still, that data are sitting on someone else's servers. Who knows what they'd do with them.

    Insane (IMHO).

    I don't doubt this and I wouldn't necessarily encourage storing sensitive info in the cloud, but I would at least point out that cloud service businesses have some very significant incentive to keep stored info of any and all kinds secure or else risk the viability of their entire business model and their businesses themselves. I suspect that if there were repeated news stories about how the Dropboxes, YouSendIts and SkyDrives of the world were hacked and/or lost lots of sensitive info, the interest in, and usage of, cloud services would drop significantly and there would be a shakeout in the industry as some of those services closed.

    Like trelawrence, I tend to just store videos, music and less-than-critical documents in the cloud, but I also trust that the services are likely secure enough to trust them with more than that (although for now I'll let other folks confirm that, eh?).

    Default BB10 feature idea: deep integration of cloud storage

    yup. bbm cloud is already there.
    that's where your next bbid integration and contacts are located.
    if u downloaded bbm7, u would have realized that there's no more backup/restore option in bbm menu.
    u just key in your bbid and the whole previous contacts are preloaded to your phone.
    and especially since bbm voice is now and bbm video will be next, rim definitely have a bigger server to store and serves bbm better.
    and oh yeah, lest not forget BB protect.
    that's where all your calendar, notepad, contacts are saved. in rim's big server.

    Good point. One widespread breach, and they're done.

    It is not for every WP8 device, if you have a Windows Live/Microsoft account, you get the 7gb of SkyDrive space (25gb, if you lucked out and upgraded back to the original space allotment.). They are just linking it with Windows Phone.

    True, good point of clarification. But since the need for a Microsoft account is effectively a requirement for getting any real functionality out of WP8 devices, MS is essentially offering 7GB SkyDrive accounts with each device unless a WP8 user already has a SkyDrive account and can in that case just use it very well with their new WP8 phone. In fact, I have a 7GB SkyDrive account but am still a BB user (and would love to be able to get more functionality out of SkyDrive from my BB, BTW, but they don't seem to play together very well at this point).

    with cloud storage integrated into BB10 they wouldn't need to come out with different size models like the iPhone. we have seen pix of the back insides of a L-Series and see that there is an SD card slot. we would have internal memory + cloud + SD. tons of places to store our files and 2 out of 3 of them wouldnt be "on the device" so it wont lag it. TH said that he has been using the BB10 for a few months now and has NEVER clocked. who knows maybe they set of the BB10 to allow the use of the 64GB SD cards

    While I applaud app developers who are making cloud-friendly file managers (Files and Folders, PlayCloud, others?), I am suggesting that the OS "speak cloud" at an OS-level. Baked-in. And so if people want to make cloud capable apps, they can use the built-in cloud API instead of having to reimplement it every time.Make a shortlist of cloud solutions (Dropbox, box, Sugarsync, Amazon, Skydrive, google Drive, others?), and support them out of the box. If a cloud provider changes an API, then issue an OS patch.
