First, Google shocks the world — 1 GB of email space. Seems incredible? Not quite! Then Yahoo! Mail increased their previously 4 MB of spare to 100 MB and 1 GB for paid subscribers — enough to hold the current subscribers for a while. Now comes the closest competitor, Microsoft’s Hotmail, who will offer 250 MB for regular users and 2GB for paid. All because of Google. ;)
Corrections: Thanks to Fernando. I was notified that Yahoo paid service actually gives out 2 GB not 1 GB.
