More traces of GDrive popping up

Traces of GDrive have been extremely difficult, or impossible, to find in the wild -- until recently that is. This higher rate of GDrive related discoveries tells me that the service is sure to be a released as a real product at some point, hopefully soon.

Just today, Philipp Lenssen at Blogoscoped posted a couple new pieces of information that were passed along to him. The first is a reference to GDrive in a Google Pack related javascript file -- which may be the preferred way to obtain your copy when it's launched.

// Localized product category of GDrive _CI_messages.CI_GDRIVE_CATEGORY = 'Online file backup and storage'; // Localized short description of GDrive (1st // of 2 description lines) _CI_messages.CI_GDRIVE_DESCRIPTION_1 = 'GDrive provides reliable storage for all of your files, including photos, music and documents'; // Localized short description of GDrive (2nd // of 2 description lines) _CI_messages.CI_GDRIVE_DESCRIPTION_2 = 'GDrive allows you to access your files from anywhere, anytime, and from any device - be it from your desktop, web browser or cellular phone';

If that isn't enough for you, how about an internal PDF file that was leaked to the giwy blog. In the document, there is detailed explanations of how tool is installed, workarounds for common issues or unfinished features, and other general information.

It's clear that the originally leaked "Platypus" is depreciated, and the new "GDrive" application is meant as a replacement for it. Not sure about you, but I'm looking forward to giving it a test drive once it's released.
