Google drive rumours and discontinuation of 32GB Galaxy Nexus


GALAXY Nexus 32GBSamsung Galaxy Nexus is unlike many other Android devices. It has no memory slot and was announced with 16 and 32GB mass storage options. The 16 GB version is already in the market, and enthusiasts were waiting for the 32GB version to boost the storage capacity of the Google/Samsung device. A spokesperson from Expansys USA confirmed that it wont be released to the market as Samsung has stopped production. And I quote:

We’ve just been notified this morning that Samsung have dropped the Galaxy Nexus 32GB from production. At this time it looks like they will not be releasing it. Not good news at all.


This comes as a bevy of rumours have it that Google is working on a competitos to Dropbox,  iCloud and Skydrive called Google drive(why do these names have to be so similar?”) According to Wall Street Journal:

Drive allows people to store photos, documents and videos on Google’s servers so that they could be accessible from any Web-connected device and allows them to easily share the files with others, these people said. If a person wants to email a video shot from a smartphone, for instance, he can upload it to the Web through the Drive mobile app and email people a link to the video rather than a bulky file.
