iPad running Windows 7 via Citrix!

We are still 50+ days out before the release of the iPad and it seems every day developers are showing the power potential of the iPad. The latest is from a company call Citrix that specializes in virtualization software, remote support and more. They are working on software that will enable remote desktop to your Windows 7 machine via the iPad. It turns out the 9.7 inch display on the iPad with a 1024×768 screen resolution works great for a full VDI XenDesktop. Windows applications run unmodified and securely in the data centre, and even multiple applications at once.

MacinBusiness reports:
As a thin client even the $499 model is a pretty amazing product and a pretty great value and certainly good enough from a CPU and RAM standpoint. And it’s a much better than a cheaper Windows-based netbook because the 1024 x 768 screen is actually
pretty much the minimum for a good Citrix client and almost all netbooks are much lower resolution than that. On-screen keyboard a pain? Maybe, but there is at least one physical keyboard option so far, and there may be more in the future.

In a round about way, this solves the multi-tasking and flash issues that have been the big chatter over the last week! :)
