Good list but in a sense it's even simpler than this.

Just solve a real customer need better than the status quo in a defendable way and you've got business.

Mobile Cloud computing to me is huge because it opens up workflows that were not before possible. I can work in the field with an iPad and perform intensive CPU/GPU computations using the cloud which sends me back information that is applciable to my current need and location. Add social to this and I can communicate instantly and effectivly with my peers, clients, and executives.
