Folks, today we have some details on Google Drive. It seems now Google is finally on the verge of launching their cloud based storage service Google Drive. GigaOm founder Om Malik’s sources believe Google Drive will launch in ‘early April’, come with 1GB of free storage, and have a similar UI to the current Google Docs interface. A new leaked screenshot has appeared that Google will be offering even more than that. Talk Android has obtained this leaked screenshot of the sign up page for Google Drive. When users sign up for the service, they’ll be received 5GB of free storage instead of the previously speculated 1GB.
Google notes that users will be able to “Put files in Google Drive and you can access them on your desktop, mobile phone or tablet, and drive.google.com.” The service, then, will most likely work similarly to Dropbox and other alternatives, with customers being able to access and make changes to files from one device, which will then update everywhere. Reports about Google Drive first emerged in early February when the WSJ said the Google offering would allow on-the-go access to files stored in the cloud and the ability to share that data with friends or co-workers.
