There's a Niche in the Mobile Cloud
The difference in the Apple service is the way it can be set up to locally replicate content across a user's computer, iPhone, iPad or iPod. It's a clever way for the Mac mavens to lock their already loyal users into upgrading to more iDevices in the future.
Seems to me that's there a space for a player that can provide both cloud storage and replicate data across several device platforms. It could be a startup, although I think a startup would have to be swimming in dollars to get all the backend work that would need to be done.
Otherwise, it seems to me that a company like BlackBerry is well placed to take on a cloud mediator role. It has the network and device chops and has recently opened up its PlayBook tablet to support some Android apps.
