LogMeIn has unveiled the official price points for Cubby, its cloud storage service that is competing with the likes of Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, and Box, among others.
$6.99 per month — when prepaid annually – will net users a year\’s worth of Cubby Pro, which will function as the \”premium\” version of the service. That will supply 100 GB of cloud storage, bonus security options, and LogMeIn\’s DirectSync capabilities, which grant users the ability to sync unlimited data across devices without taking up cloud storage space.
When not prepaid annually, users can subscribe to Cubby Pro on a monthly basis for $9.99 per month.
Cubby has been in its beta stages since April, giving users 5 GB of free storage space right off the bat, with an additional GB added for each referral made to the service. Those will continue to be the amounts for Cubby Basic, which will effectively turn Cubby\’s beta version into its standard, free version when the beta concludes sometime in early 2013.
Those who are currently using Cubby can receive a discount on their purchase of Cubby Pro, however, as a yearly subscription will only be $3.99 per month prepaid annually if bought before the beta ends.
For those keeping track, Cubby\’s free 5 GB of storage puts it right in line with Google Drive\’s and Box\’s free 5 GB, handily ahead of Dropbox\’s free 2 GB, and below SkyDrive\’s free 7 GB. Of course, free space is not all that matters here, so be sure to check out TechnologyGuide sister site TabletPCReview\’s more detailed breakdown of some of these cloud services.
