Google GDrive finally gets into the game

Google’s GDrive could be seeing the light of day sooner than later, if a new report from the Wall Street Journal is to be believed. The paper’s sources say that the company is prepping its long-rumored online storage service for possible launch within a few months. The move—which is much more of a “when” than an “if” at this point—will place Google in direct competition with similar services like Microsoft’s SkyDrive, AOL’s Xdrive, and Apple’s iDisk. The question is: how will it compare?

According to the WSJ, there will be both free and paid tiers of service, although pricing for the paid version(s) is still unknown. The GDisk will also be able to integrate with some of Google’s other services by storing files from Picasa or Google Docs, in addition to the user’s desktop files. Users will then be able to perform a single search to locate any of those files. (link)
