A leaked snapshot and new reports suggest that Google is preparing to launch its cloud internet based storage system – Google Drive, as soon as next week.

The service should go live within days for Windows PC and Apple Mac desktop computers, as well as Android and iOS based mobiles and tablets and the latest news states that Google account holders will benefit from 5GB of free data storage as opposed to the 1GB previously presumed.

Leading cloud storage provider, and new Facebook friend, Dropbox offers its free service to registering users with a 2GB cap on their uploading and Google will seek to appeal to its existing service users as well as new followers with an increased capacity and delivering a one-stop internet experience combining email through Gmail, social on Google+ and now storage and file sharing with Google Drive, which from the leaked screenshot we can see will follow suit alongside the other services.

A web domain for Google Drive is registered as http://drive.google.com – but as of yet the page remains unused. We’ll be keeping an eye on this and the latest updates on hen you Google users can benefit from that generous 5GB storage.
