BANGALORE, INDIA: A couple of more Google Drive rumours have surfaced - one in the form of a draft, confirming the date of its launch, and another a screenshot of an app said to be that of the Google Drive's.
Google Drive or GDrive, the much anticipated cloud-based/online storage service of Google, which the search engine giant has been keeping under wraps for over six years now, is finally going to be out next week.
The Next Web has come up with a report saying that it has got a draft release from a partner of Google’s upcoming Google Drive service, with 5 GB of free storage, will be launched next week, likely on Tuesday at http://drive.google.com/
On the other hand, TechCrunch were able to get their hands on a screenshot of GDrive app, which however went non-functional just after they could install it on a Mac system. According to the report these apps will work on both Mac and Windows based computers.
Ever since Google Drive was first spotted back in 2006, then known by its codename Platypus, the rumours confirming the existence of such a Google online storage service has been on and off news for quite sometime now. However, the maker never really confirmed it officially.
If launched this could be a strong competitor to Apple iCloud, DropBox, Microsoft Skydrive and other cloud storage services out there.
