Interface and logo of Google Drive Leaked
The Google’s solution to the cloud based file storage service that presumably may integrate with Android and all other products of the Google is possibly out of the box. This is reported by one of the Geekwire’s reader who claims that the Google Drive Service is apparently activated for his Google Account pretty earlier. The reader has posted the screenshot as shown below:
Geekwire extracted the favicon which appears to be pretty much similar to other Google service (like chrome). The screenshot shows the typical structure of Google’s service, which has two big buttons (similar to Google Docs), a list view of files at the middle and few buttons for management at the left. Most importantly, there is an option in the end – “Install Google Drive.” There is icon just before the file, like in this case, PDF documents have Adobe icons and some have blue icons.
As we know, Apple has already introduced iCloud with synchronization for all its devices and Microsoft’s Skydrive is already there for ages, Google is not open in this regard. If launched, Google’s long-rumored service would rival one of Silicon Valley’s successful cloud-storage provider Dropbox Inc.
Google Drive service would be available with free and premium accounts (for more storage), allowing people to store their stuffs on Google so that they could be accessible from any device connected to web and allows them to easily share with others.
