iCloud.com goes live, additional storage prices revealed

Apple has been touting its iCloud ever since it was announced back in June. Apple has finally taken the wrapping paper of off the serice and it is now in live on https://iCloud.com for developers. 

Along with launching the new beta service, Apple has also revealed its pricing strategy for additional storage on the cloud service. Apple will charge $20 for 10GB, $40 for 20GB and $100 for 50GB a year. 

iCloud is Apple's take on the cloud service. After lambasting employees over the failure of MobileMe, Apple is looking to get it right with iCloud. With Apple revealing the new service for the first time, it would indicate that the service is nearing public availability.

There have been many rumors about when the new service will go live. It is believed that the service will be launched along side the iPhone 5 which will hit retail later this fall. It is unclear if the new device will launch in September or November. 

For those who are waiting anxiously for Apple's latest service, this is a step in the right direction. With iCloud, Apple will kick off its cloud based service that offers many features to entice the user into placing their trust in Apple for securing their personal content.
