Vermont, the secret code name for Google Drive?

A few days ago, the Wall Street Journal brought the news that Google is about to launch a cloud storage service unit, ready to head a competition with Dropbox, iCloud and SkyDrive.

Its launch is scheduled to take place in the coming weeks or months. The service, which will be essentially free, will allow users to purchase more storage capacity, just as with Google Docs.

Google Drive will allow users to store photos, documents, videos, access via networked devices, sharing and will also have an application for mobile devices.

Now, an icon, codenamed “Vermont”, has been found among the codes of Chromium, the open source version of Chrome. The image shows what appears to be a Chromebook and files synced to the cloud.
