Google just announced the release of the much rumoured Google Drive (also known as GDrive) earlier this morning. The tool will allow users to create, share, collaborate, and backup data online. We have not tried Google Drive yet, but from the description, it looks like that it will be a direct competitor to DropBox, Box, SugarSync, and other similar products. Google promises that this is just the beginning and more to come in the future.
Google has made the pricing of the Google Drive a bit cheaper than the competition. The first 5 GB is free; and 25 GB is for $2.49 per month; and 100 GB is $4.99 per month. If users upgrade to any one of these paid accounts, their Gmail account will be automatically increased to 25 GB (from the current limit of 10 GB). Check out this link for a price list.

To celebrate the release of the Google Drive, Google has increased users Gmail account space from 7 GB to 10 GB (way too small compared to Yahoo!’s unlimited offering, but still it is very nice to have a 3 GB extra space) and the increase will take effect over the next 24 hours.
Below is the official announcement from Google :
