Y! Mail beats Gmail on storage

March 28, 2007

You must have known about Yahoo announcing Unlimited storage for Y! Mail. As a happy Yahoo Mail user, I am glad to see this move from them. Frankly, I didnt expect it from Yahoo.

Interesting part is, this announcement comes 3 days before Gmail’s third Birthday where Google is supposed to bump up their storage to 3.5 GB. It’ll be interesting to see what Google’s response will be.

While all these email (and storage) providers promise vast amount of storage, on an average no one really uses complete storage space provided. While most of power users will use major part of offered storage, an average joe mostly is using less than 10%. There are more average Joe’s than power users.

Anyway, love this move from Y!
