NetworkWorld: Several companies have offered iPad virtual desktop apps for a while, but industry leader VMware hadn't gotten into the game until now. The company is debuting a new "View Client for iPad," which will be available through the App Store. The new tool will make it possible to run Windows on the iPad--a difficult challenge that the company says it has been working on since the middle of last year.
The View Client for iPad will be free for existing VMware customers. The company does not have any plans to create a similar product for Android at this time.
