Wyse Extends Mobile Cloud Computing Leadership With The First Remote Desktop Application Designed For Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablets
Wyse PocketCloud App Delivers New Interface, Performance, and Usability Enhancements
SAN JOSE, CALIF. – April 13, 2011 – Today, Wyse Technology, the global leader in cloud client computing, launches version 1.2 of its market leading mobile virtualization app, PocketCloud for Android. The free app brings performance enhancements for all Android devices, with an emphasis on new user interface features and speed built on the new Android 3.0 APIs.
Since January 2011, a multitude of Honeycomb powered tablets have been announced with Motorola’s Xoom leading the way. Google designed Android 3.0 specifically for tablets in order to provide one of today’s best mobile computing experiences for both consumers and enterprise users. Wyse similarly redesigned PocketCloud to take advantage of Honeycomb’s tablet-oriented capabilities and provide the best remote access experience on Android tablets.
Version 1.2 is packed with updates including a Honeycomb-inspired interface that takes full advantage of the larger screen, with new layouts, navigation and user interface elements. Tablet-optimized version 1.2 also launches with the Auto Discovery feature out of beta, which makes setup using the PocketCloud Windows or Mac Companion as easy as logging in to a Web page.
PocketCloud is one of the most popular productivity applications in the Android Marketplace with over 750,000 downloads across mobile platforms. This is just one of many planned updates to PocketCloud aimed at enriching the user experience with Android devices.
“The goal at Wyse is to thrill our customers with features and usability that make a real impact on how they live and work”, said Daniel Barreto, GM of the Wyse Mobile Cloud Business Unit. “We listened carefully to their needs and created this version of PocketCloud, making it a great combination with Android 3.0 tablets that will have even more of them leaving their laptops behind.”
PocketCloud for Android is a free app that lets users access and control their home PC or Mac from anywhere over Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G. PocketCloud works for both Android smartphones and tablets.
