Beating both Apple and Google to the music cloud punch, Amazon has officially announced its online digital media locker, the Amazon Cloud Drive, along with its streaming service, the Amazon Cloud Player. The Cloud Drive allows for music, video, documents and photos to be uploaded, with up to 5GB available free. If you buy some music from Amazon, that limit goes to 20GB, which is about 4000 songs. The Cloud Player streams MP3 and AAC files (including DRM-free iTunes tracks) to PC/Mac and Android phones. It will not work on iOS devices since the uploader is built with Adobe’s Air platform.
