Google Drive will allegedly be unveiled next week with 5GB of free cloud space. Files will be accessible through any web browser, of course, but Google Drive will also reportedly work within local file browsers on a Windows PC or Mac, in a way identical to Dropbox desktop client. The Next Web reports that Google will release Google Drive on Android, iOS, Mac, and PC next week, and the service will come with a free 5GB of storage as reported earlier.
Google Drive main competitor Dropbox only offers 2GB of free storage space, while iCloud and Box each offer 5GB of free space. This service is set to be free in its simplest form and pay for additional space. The image you see above from Talk Android isn’t quite so new, but may very well be real as well. We will have to wait and see exactly how it all works out. Also presumed in Google Drive is an in-app Documents editor, leading us to believe that the Google Drive service will be much more of an extension of Google Docs than a standalone service.
