The mythical unicorn Google Drive is so close, we can practically taste it. Earlier today, Reuters broke the news of a possible Tuesday launch (that would be today), confirming earlier rumors of an initial free 5GB quota and throwing a new number, 100GB of upgradeable storage, into the mix.

It's quite possible that Reuters' sources were on the money this time, as around the same time, Google started bumping the usual free 1GB Docs storage limit all the way up to... you guessed it - 5GB. Check it out:


Additional pricing still remains at $0.25/GB, but this could change with the official announcement. Google Drive is expected to launch with desktop and Android sync clients and enhance the Google Docs experience, giving the likes of Dropbox, Box, and other cloud syncing services a run for their money.

I have a really good feeling about this - anyone taking bets on the official launch later on today? How about U.S.-only vs worldwide?

Thanks, Abhisshek!
