Carbonite Releases ‘Carbonite Access Beta’ for Android

Carbonite, the popular online backup service, has just released a beta version of their new Carbonite Access application for Android. As one would safely assume, the app lets Carbonite customers download and share files, listen to music, and view photos with their handsets. Carbonite Access works on all Android phones running 1.6 or higher and can be downloaded in the Android Market or directly from Carbonite.

Carbonite Access for Android options:

  • Browse: Once the application is downloaded, consumers will log into their Carbonite account on the mobile device. They will then be able to browse all folders and files backed up through Carbonite, arranged in the same file locations as they are on the computer.
  • Share: Backed up files can be shared through the phone via e-mail, Picasa, Facebook and other social-networking applications.
  • View: Backed up photos can be previewed using thumbnails or quickly viewed full screen using the integrated photo viewer from Carbonite.
  • Listen: Consumers also can utilize Carbonite Access for Android to listen to music backed up from their computer directly on their phone in a matter of seconds.

Carbonite customers can download the app from the Android Market or by visiting

Carbonite launched its online backup service in 2006 and has raised more than $67 million in several rounds of venture financing. The company has received numerous accolades in 2010 including a No. 9 overall and No. 1 in IT Services Inc. 500 ranking, the Tech Awards Circle Gold Award for consumer/small office, home office (SOHO) service category and Privately held company of the year honors from the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council. Additionally, Carbonite was selected as a finalist in the Red Herring 100 North America list and CEO David Friend was named as the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year winner for New England in the Consumer and Small Business Emerging Technology category.
