Google Drive leaks again, launch seems imminent
After a couple of rumors last week all but confirmed Google Drive’s existence, now we saw the service live on a developer’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus. In an Android Developers Hangout, while showing an application, one of the sharing options was Google Drive. 

You can see it all for yourself in the video below - a blurry image saying “Google Drive” and a neat triangular logo. Google quickly took the video down in what further hints at how real Google Drive is, but nothing can be hidden from the internet and it resurfaced reuploaded shortly after disappearing.

Google Drive is expected to launch very soon, possibly some time during this week. Expectations are that it will be a free Google service with a 5GB data allowance. More service will require an annual fee. Overall, G Drive is expected to be very similar to Dropbox, but with tighter integration with Android and even more functionality like editing of documents.

If Google do a good job with Google Drive I will most likely drop Dropbox and use it instead. Dropbox needs to increase the default storage capacity to at least 5Gb as 2GB is simply not enough.

I'm really looking forward to Google Drive. You could earn up to about 32GBs through referrals and bunch of other stuff on DropBox, but the pricing beyond that 32GBs might be the key to who wins in the future. Knowing Google, I think it'll become very competitive there.
