Now with Android camera backup and video sharing, this looks an interesting prospect.

Today we are thrilled to announce the global availability of OneDrive. For our existing SkyDrive customers, you are all set; your files are ready in the new OneDrive experience. All you have to do is head over to www.OneDrive.com and log in. For those of you hearing about the service for the first time, OneDrive gives you one place for all of your files, including photos, videos, and documents, and it’s available across the devices you use every day.Microsoft Launches OneDrive Cloud Storage Worldwide, Was SkyDrive [blog.onedrive.com]
As part of that goal, we’re doing more than just changing the name with today’s release: We’re rolling out several new capabilities, including automatic camera backup for Android and the ability to share and view videos just as easily as photos. We’ve also added new ways for you to earn more storage—on top of the 7 GB we already give you for free. Customers who refer friends can now receive up to 5 GB (in 500 MB increments) for each friend who accepts an invitation to OneDrive, and we’ll even give you 3 GB just for using the camera backup feature, since we want to help make sure you never lose another photo. There’s even a new monthly payment plan, if you’d like a little more flexibility in how you use your storage.
To celebrate the official launch of OneDrive, today we will also give 100,000 people 100 GB of free storage for 1 year. That’s 10 PB of free storage—enough storage space for a photo of everyone on the planet. If you want to be one of those 100,000, keep an eye on @OneDrive for clues.

Too bad a lot of the promos are limited to the US and Canada. They could have garnered some more good will from around the world with more storage giveaways. I see a lot of complaints in their Twitter feed.

It's good to see that they're offering more packages and incentives like their competitors. SkyDrive/OneDrive is not a bad remote storage service. I've found it to be quite reliable over the years.
