Citrix To Bring Desktop Virtualization To iPhone
Citrix has announced that they are nearing completion of a product that will deliver desktop virtualization to the iPhone and other smartphones next year. Both Mac and PC users will have the ability to access the same desktop session that they would if they were on their computer using the Citrix App Reciever.
Citrix App Reciever is a software client that installed on both the iPhone and the computer and works in conjunction with their desktop virtualization software or XenApp Windows application delivery system. Users could then access their machines by logging in to a central server.
Citrix’s John Humphreys, their senior director of product marketing, says that it should be especially useful to business users who don’t want to bring a laptop with them but need access to their computers.
