Apple, Citrix, Ipad, run windows 7 on ipad, VDI XenDesktop, Windows 7, xen desktop, xenapp
Well there you have it, even iPad users can’t stay away from Windows 7! With Windows 7 running through Citrix users will actually get to multitask!
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 center, and even multiple applications at once.
The iPhone restrictions of screen size and small keyboards are overcome with the iPad. The iPad looks to be an ideal end-point device that can empower users to be productive wherever they are and IT will be able to safely deliver company-hosted virtual desktops and apps without worry.
Mind you i personally will not bother with a iPad, I might go for an HP Slate, or a touch screen netbook…
