Today we’ll find out what iCloud really is…

There’s been an enormous amount of speculation surrounding Apple’s upcoming iCloud announcement and in a few short hours we’ll find out just what it’s really all about.

Will we be able to stream our complete music collection to any iDevice we own? Maybe all our movies and photos as well? Will iCloud allow us to sync all our info between all of our devices – a MobileMe replacement? Or maybe it’s something much bigger than that…

My favourite quote so far is from Kevin Fox, a Silicon Valley software veteran who’s worked at Apple, Yahoo and Google.

“… given the complete failure of MobileMe over the last decade there’s no way Apple would introduce [iCloud] on such a pedestal unless it’s incredible. My guess is that iCloud is to MobileMe as iPhone was to Newton: a complete, deep, polished solution after an underwhelming market failure.”

So let’s hope we’re not underwhelmed in a few hours time…
