We’ve heard rumors about Google launching its cloud-based storage service, Google Drive, not too long ago, and now we’re hearing about it once again. This time it’s from the folks over at GigaOM. According to their well placed sources familiar with Google’s plans, Google Drive might be launching sometime during the first week of April.

The service is said to offer 1GB of storage space for free and will charge for more storage, come with a local client and have a web interface that resembles Google Docs. It is also said to be launching for Google Apps customers and be domain specific as well, and there is also mention of an API for 3rd party app support. The sources have also mentioned that they’re impressed with what they’ve seen so far.

As usual, we’ve got no way to verify the rumor, so we’ll just have to wait and see. The first week of April is only a few days away, so it shouldn’t be much of a wait if it turns out to be true.
