The debut of the new Cloud Storage, Google Drive is heading towards a big launch date set for an amazing 5GB of Free Storage space for free trumps, the default storage that user gets from Dropbox’s 2GB. As rumored earlier this month Google Drive now looks set to launch in the middle of next week, and bring with it a healthy 5GB of storage to users for free. Matching the offerings by Box.net and SugarSync, and beating the 2GB of storage offered by Dropbox.

Both Microsoft and Apple are involved in the space in some form, well on top of highly successful startups entirely dedicated to providing such services. Apart this, since 2010, there have been rumors that Google was planning to launch a cloud storage service, and more recently, it was revealed on good authority such a service was kept in the pipeline, and they called it as Google Drive.

The service will work with both Windows and Macs “in desktop folders.” It’s not clear exactly what that means, but it could mean that Google Drive will upload and sync folders on users computers. Those folders would then be available through the Google Drive service on desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Allowing you to use Google Drive as if it was an extra local drive.

Other features expected to arrive with the new Google Drive service, is the ability for users to be able to edit documents whilst within the application. Dropbox, Box.net and other cloud services could face a huge challenge next week, and may need to increase offerings and change strategies to compete with Google.

Currently nothing has been confirmed by Google, including the launch date. But as always when new information comes to light we will keep you updated.
