All but confirmed now. The Next Web says it will launch next week, with 5 GB of free storage, and TechCrunch has dug up the Mac client from Google’s servers (although it doesn’t work yet, obviously).

This space is getting really interesting. Microsoft is revamping SkyDrive to support file syncing like Dropbox (Live Mesh does the same but is extremely poorly integrated), and Google Drive will also have apps for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. I don’t think there needs to be one clear winner – all solutions have their unique strengths. SkyDrive and Google Drive would be tied into their respective ecosystems, while Dropbox remains the true cross-platform solution with more sophisticated features (like file history).
