Security is a real issue even though it is true that cloud computing is just as safe as traditional systems when it comes to apparent vulnerabilities and security holes. This is because of the nature of cloud computing, the public cloud, there are a lot more people with proximity access to the data. What I mean is that compared to an in-house system where there is virtually no connection to the outside internet, the whole world will now be potentially be able to just walk up to your door, so to speak, in public cloud systems.

Roaming charges especially in regards to data have always been prohibitively expensive. The EU (via Commissioner Neelie Kroes) has already done a lot to drive prices down to more affordable levels but it is still not enough. The psychological barrier still exists and will continue to weigh down on mobile usage. If the consumer is going to be made to feel comfortable enough to rely on cloud storage, wherever that might be, than the levy for being away from home must be removed entirely.
