Google Drive could be launched as early as next week, offers 5GB free as startersWhen the news first broke over Google Drive, Google’s answer and possible competitor to Dropbox, many were wondering just what sort of services and features that Google could offer to its users to differentiate itself, and more importantly, when would such a service be made available? Well according to the folks at TNW, they have reportedly managed to get their hands on a draft document that details some of Google Drive’s upcoming features. For starters it is expected to provide users with 5GB of free storage right off the bat and would most likely be launched next Tuesday. This most definitely trumps what Dropbox is offering users which is a default of 2GB free.

Pricing plans and the different data tiers remain unknown for now, but as far as operations are concerned, Google Drive will reportedly work in “desktop folders” on both Windows and Mac computers. In fact, the folks over at Tech Crunch have managed to get their hands on what appears to be an app for Mac OS X computers for Google Drive. Unfortunately while the app installs fine, it seems that Google will need to enable Google Drive first before the app becomes fully functional. We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled, so be sure to check back with us next week for the details!
