After SkyDrive released an app for its cloud-based storage service for the iOS and Windows Phone platforms, Android users were not exactly stuck with no options. But then again, some people might prefer to opt for the Microsoft version of the system as opposed to other cloud-based services like Dropbox and Google Drive. Now apparently, an anonymous tipster has told the folks over at LiveSide that he has obtained documents from a few SkyDrive folders belonging to several SkyDrive team members. The irony that he claims to have gotten SkyDrive documents from SkyDrive folders belonging to SkyDrive team members isn’t exactly lost on us.
From the alleged documents, it was apparently revealed that SkyDrive’s next step is to bring an application for Android users. In addition to that, the documents apparently also revealed that it will contain a feature called ‘Recycle Bin’ which will allow users to restore deleted items as we have been seeing for years in Hotmail and even in Windows. However, the question that remains here (if this is true of course) is whether the items in the Recycle Bin will be part of the set quota of space users have. While this news bodes well for Android users and will give them more options to choose from, we have to insist that you; like us, treat this as nothing more than a rumor.
