Will the Sidekick data issue affect the future of mobile phone cloud services?

The T-Mobile Sidekick was my very first fully converged device (see my 2002 Geek.com review) and I don't recall ever hearing about a significant data issue over the 7 years since T-Mobile has been carrying and supporting the Sidekick devices. The Danger seamless syncing was on the cutting edge of cloud services and I wonder if this service outage will tarnish perceptions of cloud services outside of the connected tech community. It looks like Microsoft (fairly new owner of Danger) may be able to recover most of the data now and may have put out the earlier statements so people didn't get their hopes up too much. We in the mobile community have all been talking about the service outage and some stories make it sound like the end of the world, but I wonder if the teenager using the Sidekick cares so much to never use their Sidekick again.
