Leaked Google Drive Screenshot Reveals 5GB of Free Storage
Details about Google Drive first appeared in February when the Wall Street Journal reported the service would allow on-the-go access to files stored in the cloud and the ability to share files with friends or co-workers.
A leaked screenshot — obtained by TalkAndroid.com — revealed that Drive members will receive 5GB of free storage, rivaling the likes of Amazon‘s Cloud Drive and Dropbox. Leading the competition is Microsoft‘s SkyDrive, which provides users with 25GB of free storage.
Through Google Drive, you’ll be able to access your files on your desktop, mobile device, tablet, or drive.google.com — currently this results in a 404 error.
As the launch date draws near, Google has already started updating its Support pages, referencing the document-editing capabilities of Google Drive’s Android app. The Next Web suggests a possible integration with Google Docs, an idea that might not be too far-fetched considering the site’s earlier report on enabling the hidden option.
While none of this has been confirmed by Google, we might not have to wait much longer. Om Malik — GigaOm founder — believes Google Drive will launch in early April. Google Drive is a logical next step for the search giant as the it continues integrating its products along with its recent centralization of account activity.
