Google has finally entered the cloud storage market to compete with Dropbox and other cloud storage providers. Their latest product, Google Drive, will offer customers 5GB of storage for free, with larger storage capacities (up to 16TB) available for a price.
The best part of all this for us Android users is obviously going to be the fully-featured Android app. The Google Drive app offers us the ability to upload content from Android phones directly to the cloud. How great is that? Your files, easily accessible from any computer or mobile device. [Market Link]
