After gaining a good amount of interest from carriers for Windows Phone 7, Microsoft is teaming up with Verizon Wireless to help promote Windows Phone 8, which is due out later this year. Verizon’s Chief Financial Office, Fran Shammo said that Verizon is looking to make Windows Phone their third platform behind iOS and Android. He mentioned that,
“We’re really looking at the Windows Phone 8.0 platform because that’s a differentiator. We’re working with Microsoft on it,”
While the Windows Phone platform continues to grow it will be interesting to see what other interest they can garner as time gets closer to Windows 8.0 holiday release.

According to a recent The Next Web (TNW) report, Google’s rumored “Google Drive” service will launch next week @http://drive.google.com for Mac, Windows, Android and iOS and will include 5 GB of free storage.
I can’t wait to see how the service will integrate with “Google Docs” and how we will interact with Google Drive. TNW is reporting that Google Drive will work “in desktop folders” on both Mac and Windows machines.
I’ve been a long time Dropbox user, but may replace it with Google Drive as my virtual storage of choice depending on its implementation.
Do you intend to use Google Drive when its released next week?
