Wyse Extends Leadership in Mobile Cloud Computing with Breakthrough PocketCloud Client Virtualization App for iPad

Wyse Technology, a global leader in thin computing and client virtualization, today announced its Wyse PocketCloud™ App for iPad is available on the App Store. In addition, Wyse PocketCloud has also been enhanced with more than 20 new features and improvements for existing iPhone users, including VMware View™ 4 support, enhanced user experience via the new Wyse Touch Pointer™ and additional audio features.

"The goal at Wyse is to allow our customers to access any document or file from any device. The PocketCloud App has been a great addition to our offerings and we're delighted to be supporting iPad at launch," said Daniel Barreto, chief software architect for Wyse. "The fact iPad will provide PocketCloud users with a beautiful, large screen makes the combination of iPad and PocketCloud a natural fit. We expect the adoption of iPad to be yet another reason for businesses and consumers to abandon their PCs."

PocketCloud has been completely re-written to run natively on iPad, taking full advantage of the high resolution screen. PocketCloud's user interface has also been updated to make it easier for iPad users to edit and modify their RDP and VMware View connections. Additionally, PocketCloud's core engine takes full advantage of iPad's fast 1GHz processor.

PocketCloud features include:

• iPad native full-resolution support.

• Enhanced Multi-Touch interface for iPad.

• Up to 50% faster on iPad.

• Custom keyboard with function and short-cut keys.
