GDrive On The Way

After waiting of many years, Google's online storage service will finally be available soon for the users. it will only be an updated version of Google Docs, but it will be popular as Gdrive

"Instead of email your large file, you can upload to Google Docs(Gdrive) any file up to 250 MB(..!). You will have 1 GB of free storage on Gdrive,for your files you don't convert into one of the Google Docs formats (i.e. Google documents, spreadsheets, and presentations), it is also possible that if you want a more space for your document you can buy the space as extra storage for extra Money per GB(its so cheap) as mentioned on  Google Docs blog.

This Massive change  will be slowly rolled out in the coming few days and it's the next step of google to  the evolution of Google's online office suite. 
Google's expected to launch 'GDrive',

With Google Drive, you can: 
  • Create and collaborate. Google Docs is built right into Google Drive(GDrive), so you can work with others in real time on documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Once you choose to share content with others, you can add and reply to comments on anything (PDF, image, video file, etc.) and receive notifications when other people comment on shared items.
  • Store everything safely and access it anywhere. You can access your stuff from anywhere—on the web, in your home, at the office, while running errands and from all of your devices. You can install Drive on your Mac or PC and can download the Drive app to your Android phone or tablet. We’re also working hard on a Drive app for your iOS devices. And regardless of platform, blind users can access Drive with a screen reader.
  • Search everything. Search by keyword and filter by file type, owner and more. Drive can even recognize text in scanned documents using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. Let’s say you upload a scanned image of an old newspaper clipping. You can search for a word from the text of the actual article. We also use image recognition so that if you drag and drop photos from your Grand Canyon trip into Drive, you can later search for [grand canyon] and photos of its gorges should pop up. This technology is still in its early stages, and we expect it to get better over time.
You can get started with 5GB of storage for free—that’s enough to store the high-res photos of your trip to the Mt. Everest, scanned copies of your grandparents’ love letters or a career’s worth of business proposals, and still have space for the novel you’re working on. You can choose to upgrade to 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for $49.99/month. When you upgrade to a paid account, your Gmail account storage will also expand to 25GB.
