There have been rumors floating all around the internet about Google's upcoming Drive cloud storage service. It was recently leaked that everyone would get only 2GB of free storage space at launch, but new leaks are saying it's much more. Currently one of the top free cloud storage services, Dropbox, offers 2GB for free and more space if you want to pay for it. Google Drive is now rumored to offer up to 5GB for free at launch, which is quite a lot of space considering it's free storage that's accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.

The website who has a source inside of Google, Talk Android, had recently posted a screen shot that showed Google Drive would offer 2GB for free, but possibly more. They have a new screen shot now that says 5GB, which is obviously better for all of the end-users. You can see the screen shot here, and read Talk Android's report here. Rumors floating around point toward a launch date of April 16 for Google Drive, so more (official) information should be out soon.
