My suggestion would be to only have a look at two vendors at the moment - Amazon Web Services (Ec2) and Rack Space. Although new ones seem to be rapidly popping up like HP etc.
You will find Amazon being way ahead of most players by a couple of years. You can also set up and experiment with your own "free private" cloud by using OpenStack - FYI RackSpace is largely powered by OpenStack.
Instead of looking at "cloud definitions", I would suggest having a real play with these platforms. I know it will take some time but it will give you more hands on experience and assist with re-defining the meaning of what you actually read about public clouds. And really understand where this is all heading
