Buy Extra Storage Space for Gmail and Picasa from Google

Is your free Gmail account full of large attachments? Is your Picasa Web Albums at end of storage limit? Google now offers you a way a paid option to buy extra storage webspace and continue using these popular web services.

Currently, Gmail offers over 2.8 GB of free storage to all users and Picasa Web Albums gives users 1 GB of storage just for Picasa Web Albums images. Now you can purchase extra storage from Google, and that space will be shared by both products as needed as you upload or receive more data.

You can pay via Google checkout and get these deals
6 GB ($20.00 per year)
25 GB ($75.00 per year)
100 GB ($250.00 per year)
250 GB ($500.00 per year)

See how much storage you’re using. Soon other applications like Google Docs and Spreadsheets may get paid storage options too. This has been a wise step which will help top end-users of Gmail to continue expanding their inbox capacity and let Picasa web albums users load more high resolution images.

Does it also mean the Gmail inbox storage capacity will no longer be unlimited… after all Rediffmail and Yahoo Mail are offering unlimited web storage.
