Google launches paid plans for increased Gmail and Picasa storage
Now Google has launched a new paid service to let you beef up your online storage for those two services. $1 a year will snag you 6GB of shared storage space that can be used for Picasa or Gmail. Or if you've got a ton of e-mail to save, you can try out these plans:
- 25GB for $75/year
- 100GB for $250/year
- 250GB for $500/year
Odds are in the future we'll see other Google services added to this shared plan, including Google Docs & Spreadsheets.
Update: It looks like Google has updated their pricing, and 6GB of online storage will cost you $20/year, not $1. We don't know if the initial pricing was a typo or a promotion that only lasted a few hours. But if you don't believe us, there is evidence that the price was originally $1.
