Dropbox has announced a new partnership with the wireless carrier Deutsche Telekom that will result in a much higher profile for the cloud storage service in some central and eastern European countries.

The deal will begin in October when Deutsche Telekom will promote the use of Dropbox for cloud storage to its existing iPhone and iPad customers in those territories. The partnership, however, won't extend to the carrier's home country of Germany.

Marc Sommer, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Deutsche Telekom, was quoted as saying:

We're dedicated to giving our customers the best-possible user experience so they can enjoy life and work on-the-go. That's why Dropbox, an industry-leading service, was an obvious addition to the services we offer. Dropbox's intuitive interface and global popularity make it easy for everyone to see, share, and work on the photos, videos, and documents that matter to them.

What do you think of this new partnership and will it serve to expand Dropbox's audience worldwide?
