Rumor: Google Drive Arriving Next Week

Pulkit Chandna

After a brief hiatus, Google Drive rumors made a comeback last month when the venerable Wall Street Journal reported that the long-fabled service was finally on the verge of release. Many weeks have passed and there’s still no sign of the Dropbox-like cloud storage service. What we have instead is yet another tantalizing rumor.

The latest Google Drive rumor, which comes to us from GigaOm patriarch Om Malik, has the long rumored service debuting as early as next week. Well, at least that’s what Malik’s “well placed” sources have told him. According to Malik, his sources are very impressed with what they have seen so far.

If these sources are to be believed, we are looking at a cloud service offering with 1GB of free storage, a native client, a Google Docs-like web interface, and an API for third-party apps. The report further claims that Google Apps users will be able to use it on a domain-specific basis.
