However, reports suggest that it may finally be launched in the next couple of weeks. Many details as well as the app for Google Drive have been leaked. Reportedly, Google Drive will offer 5 GB of free cloud storage -- greater than its number one competitor, Dropbox, but less than Microsoft's ( MSFT), which offers 25 GB of free storage. It will also compete with Apple's ( AAPL) iCloud, a cloud-based storage and sync service.
