Where's the spectrum?
Agreed on the WAN observation. The US spectrum auction situation isn't exactly promising. IoT-enabled consumer home and stationary retail/factory devices can use wi-fi, but what about the cars, planes, trains, buses, etc.

The standard of Standards
I absolutely agree, one of the biggest hurdles when it comes to the IoT is that there is simply no standards when it comes to supporting this platform.  Aside from this there are other significant hurdles that will push against mass adoption. First, since IoT data is often one-time feeds, how do we ensure data protection and replication standards are met?  What about large data feeds such as from medical devices, will there be some form of WAN optimization native to support these data feeds, especially as usage picks up?  And most importantly, how do you secure these feeds?  They often lack encryption or data can be read by rogue devices (RFID is particularly succeptible) and must be secure if they are to interact with personal information.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
