Google Drive Could be Launching Soon

We’ve heard of Google Drive a few times over the past few years. The service has been real in the past and was used internally, but due to problems and it not being ready, it never made it public. This could be changing soon.

GDrive is a service that is similar to Google Docs in that you can store documents and files within the cloud. What GDrive will do is make it more noticeable to all users that they can store more than just the documents they edit within the cloud.

To add to this functionality, Google will also release apps for smartphones and various operating systems that will allow users to easily gran the files they have uploaded… ie, think Dropbox here.

It is believed Google [GOOG] will work on a free storage allocation of a few GB that will grow larger over time. It would then likely include the GDrive service to Google Apps users allowing even more space to store documents and files on the web.

An exact release date is not known at the moment but with the screenshot spotted in a presentation above, expect it to launch soon.

We also are not sure what will happen to, but expect the URL to redirect to gdrive (google drive) at launch where all your files plus a few new features will be found.
