Wyse Extends Mobile Cloud Computing Leadership With the First Remote Desktop Application Designed For Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablets

Wyse PocketCloud Mobile Cloud App Delivers Innovative New User Interface, Security and High Performance with Optimized User Experience for both Consumers and Enterprises

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, launches version 1.2 of its market leading mobile virtualization app, PocketCloud for Android. The free app brings performance enhancements for all Android devices, with an emphasis on new user interface features and speed built on the new Android 3.0 APIs.

Since January 2011, a multitude of Honeycomb powered tablets have been announced with Motorola’s Xoom leading the way. Google designed Android 3.0 specifically for tablets in order to provide one of today’s best mobile computing experiences for both consumers and enterprise users. Wyse similarly redesigned PocketCloud to take advantage of Honeycomb’s tablet-oriented capabilities and provide the best remote access experience on Android tablets.

Version 1.2 is packed with updates including a Honeycomb-inspired interface that takes full advantage of the larger screen, with new layouts, navigation and user interface elements. Tablet-optimized version 1.2 also launches with the Auto Discovery feature out of beta, which makes setup using the PocketCloud Windows or Mac Companion as easy as logging in to a Web page.

PocketCloud is one of the most popular productivity applications in the Android Marketplace with nearly 800,000 downloads across mobile platforms. This is just one of many planned updates to PocketCloud aimed at enriching the user experience with Android devices.

"The goal at Wyse is to thrill our customers with features and usability that make a real impact on how they live and work,” said Daniel Barreto, GM of the Wyse Mobile Cloud Business Unit. “We listened carefully to their needs and created this version of PocketCloud, making it a great combination with Android 3.0 tablets that will have even more of them leaving their laptops behind.”

PocketCloud for Android is a free app that lets users access and control their home PC or Mac from anywhere over Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G. PocketCloud works for both Android smartphones and tablets.

This is cool, it would be great for helping the parental units when they have computer questions and I'm out and about. Controlling the computer with a phone is a great idea. It's been done many times before but still cool when you see it in action.

I've tried to use remote desktop clients on my Droid X before and it was either to much hassle to set up, or too glitchy once I got it working.

Hopefully WYSE's particular app has solved both those issues in some kinda of way and im guessing speed/responsiveness could be bottlnecked by my Wi-Fi or limited power of a mobile processor but since this is designed for tablets at least the speed/power issues are resolved.

I'm deffinitely gonna check this one out and maybe give it a try :)

Nice! I use TeamViewer all the time to help friends and family fix their computers remotely. Being able to do this from a tablet would be very convenient sometimes!

I have worked with Wyse equipment on many occasions in store fronts generally. I have used them for Kiosk stations as well and generally there equipment has been solid and reliable for what ever I have used it for. So this should be solid as well I would imagine. As O Sunday say's it has not been super easy to implement on his own equipment (Smart Phone) which is the same I have heard several times in the past. I imagine Wyse making this application should be solid as well as there main experience has generally been in this remote type platform as well.
