Google Drive officially launched, comes with 5GB of free storage

Google has officially launched Google Drive today and it is designed to be a place to create, share, collaborate, and keep all your stuff organized. Google Drive comes with 5GB of free storage with the options to purchase more space.

Google Drive allows users to utilize Google Docs so users can work with others in real time on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Google Drive can be installed on a Mac, PC, or even an Android phone using the Drive app. Google Drive can even recognize text in scanned documents using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. Google Drive users can also purchase additional space. For example, users can 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. Get started with Google Drive.

Will Google Drive be a viable competitor to Dropbox and SkyDrive?
