    As pointed out in the article, the adoption of this level of cloud dependence is in itself dependent on faster, more reliable broadband. It will be interesting to see whether the broadband capacity comes before further innovation in processors to allow exponentially larger processing power to be housed in mobile devices. I think the cloud route will ultimately win, but when is the question?

    I do like the idea of the clod being accessed directly by the device and not through the browser interface. This, in my opinion is great for wider adoption of cloud computing – I think some people find it strange to use their traditionally desktop applications through an internet browser.

    I agree. The question is when. Well, we are at the mercy of telcos to do their part of the innovation :-).

    I also have no problem as long we could use lean devices to tap the cloud. I am not seeing any established software vendors thinking along the lines of having a lightweight apps tapping into the Clouds. They are still pushing for their bloated apps with Cloud being an addon. Till we see the proliferation of light weight apps, browser based SaaS vendors are going to be successful. Plus, in this case, browser is the only entry point. Unless we see lightweight apps taking advantage of the Clouds in the backend, sooner than later people will get comfortable with having a single entry point to deal with.
