The long-rumored Google Drive may finally launch next month, putting the search giant toe to toe with Dropbox, the leader in the cloud storage market. The latest rumor concerning Google Drive came from GigaOM , which claims "well placed sources" are saying the cloud storage service "might" launch in early April. Drive will offer users 1 GB of free storage and charge for additional space, according to the report. Others in the cloud storage market offer much more than 1 free GB. Dropbox offers 2 GBs, Microsoft's SkyDrive offers 25 free GBs, and Amazon Cloud Drive offers 5 free GBs. A spokesman for the company said in an email that Google does not comment on rumors or speculation.
