Here is the future of Cloud Computing – Run Windows 7 on iPhone, run as a thin client.
Wyse released PocketCloud iPhone application that features a RDP 6 client (Windows 7 compatible) for iPhone/iPod Touch with one very unique Feature- VMware View 3.1 support, making it a perfect Thin-OS.
Till this app was released, I used iRdesktop for RDP, which is a capable and free RDP client that has done everything one needs.
