Is India ready for the clouds?

Recently i talked about cloud computing. That made me think about what we are doing with clouds in this part of the world? We all know that cloud computing is all about applications, data and computing on the internet and in this part of the word we suffer a lot because of high internet latency, even bandwidth is a problem.

As this technology is just 10 years old, salesforce.com has started to see some potential here, particularly for mobile market.What is exclusive for India is that there will be offline computing and once your PDA/netbook gets a connection it will synchronize. I have my doubts about it.
I wonder what amazon, salesforce, ebay or google can do about latency? I have been working on hosted google docs for months now and i know i am better off because i get the latest document every time where ever i am ,and with version history, but mostly latency beats me up.
