Internet users will soon be able to access their files and documents from any computer or compatible device that has a connection to the internet using Google Docs' cloud-based storage.

"We're happy to announce that over the next few weeks we will be rolling out the ability to upload, store and organize any type of file in Google Docs. With this change, you'll be able to upload and access your files from any computer - all you need is an Internet connection," wrote Vijay Bangaru, Product Manager, Google Docs, on the Google Docs' Blog on January 12.

Consumers will be able to upload any type of document to Google Docs as long as it is within the 250 MB size limit.

Google Docs users will be given 1 GB of free storage and can purchase additional storage for a yearly charge of $0.25 per GB (starting at 20 GB for $5 per year).
