After a long wait for 2 years Google Drive is finally here. Google has launched its online storage concept and this time it is really challenging. Google drive is also a cloud syncing concept. Microsoft has also released the same kind of concept called as Microsoft Skydrive two days ago.
The most important thing is the current champion in online storage that is Dropbox. Dropbox will now face a real competition from Google and Microsoft as well. Well I am a dropbox user and had a 2GB of free storage plan and was planning to upgrade it.But now I think I will now change to Google Drive as it offers 5gb of free storage which is pretty reasonable.Well I hop seeing this Dropbox will lower down the price of its online storage or otherwise people with migrate to Google Drive or Microsoft SkyDrive.
