Dropbox may be the reigning king of cloud based storage but Google is rearing to plunk that shiny crown off its head! April is looking to be the month that Google Drive is floating into Android devices and PC’s, bringing 1GB of free storage, a dedicated version for Google Apps users and an API that would allow geeks using other apps to store content on Drive. Much like Dropbox, saved content would be accessible on Android units and PCs.
If Google is serious, they’re going to have to step up the storage space. Dropbox gives users 2GB gratis with the ability to earn more free space by doing things like referring friends or participating in projects like beta testing the camera upload feature. Short of doing that, Google may have settle with a comfortable coexistence with Dropbox.
