Mobile Asia Congress, Hong Kong November 17-18, 2010 - Peter Chou, CEO of fast-growing Taiwanese smartphone vendor HTC, used his keynote at Congress to explain:
"Cloud computing will play a critical role in the smartphone experience. As the mobile becomes more powerful we can’t store everything on the device; we need the cloud."
He pointed to the launch of HTC's new service HTCSense.com as an example of how its smartphones can leverage the power of cloud computing. In the same Congress, Ryuji Yamada, president and CEO of NTT Docomo, emphasized on the cloud computing services.
With the launch of 3G services in India & revolutionary LTE in USA - will this accelerate the Cloud Computing adoption rate?
With Android becoming ubiquitous & driving down the handset prices – number of smart-phone users will soon reach critical mass in emerging economies like India, China, Brazil, Russia etc. Let us check the opinions of a few of the leading technology experts in Indian Cloud Service Arena.

Absolutely it will accelerate Cloud Computing. The Cloud and SaaS are going to be much more about the Mobile than about the Desktop, so the wider the pipe is at that end, the more users can do with mobile devices. And that will in turn give rise to a whole lot of Services in domains that one would not have thought of – healthcare, eGovernance, etc.
The big change on the side of providers like us is that we now have to build for smaller and smaller screen-sizes. That forces us to be minimalist, in a way – something Enterprise software developers are not used to. IMHO, the companies that recognize and embrace this (among other things) will come out ahead quicker.
One of the defining characteristics of Cloud Computing is its device and location independence. Cloud Computing relies primarily on the existence of services and data on the internet rather than individual devices, providing on-demand access. Both 3G and LTE will play a pivotal role in carrying Cloud Computing beyond the early adopter market into the mainstream.
Using the internet as a backbone, telecommunication providers will leverage the Cloud to offer a range of services to their customer base. Thus, services come closer to the consumer and provide a higher level of accessibility than ever before. In the future, we see a fundamental shift in the consumption of these services – primarily on hand-held devices – mobiles, tablets, etc. – rather than PCs.
The natural consequence of this is the movement of Cloud services from a consumption model to a production model.
