According to the companies, mobile professionals looking for the ultimate mobility solution, can now access their entire desktop PC using Samsung's SPH-i700 Microsoft Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone with Citrix GoToMyPC from Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. Our review of GoToMyPC is available here.
Available through Verizon Wireless, the combination of the i700 and GoToMyPC allows users to view and control their entire PC desktop.
GoToMyPC's PocketView feature provides fast, easy and secure access to a computer desktop including all files, applications, network resources, and even non-Web content from a PDA running Microsoft Windows Mobile or Microsoft Windows CE 4x. Its real-time screen-sharing interface provides an intuitive remote desktop usage experience. Features include scaling, image rotation for landscape viewing, and one-click scrolling to enable faster movement around the desktop. GoToMyPC on the i700 is extremely intuitive to deploy and use, no special IT support or training is required.
"Samsung's commitment of providing the best mobile enterprise devices in the market is furthered by the GoToMyPC solution that enables mobile professionals to work from anywhere while having full access to their desktop PCs from their i700," said Peter Skarzynski, senior vice president of Samsung's wireless terminals division. "The i700 is the ultimate productivity tool because it puts your office in the palm of your hands."
GoToMyPC's Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with 128-bit keys provides a protected platform for the highest levels of security, whether for accessing desktop and network resources, preparing presentations, or modifying documents. Security features also include one-time passwords, end-to-end user authentication, screen blanking, and mouse locking of the host computer. And since data accessed over the i700 never actually resides on the handheld device, users don't have to worry about the potential loss or theft of their PDAs.
The companies say that Samsung customers who wish to experience GoToMyPC with the i700 can do so through the device's Pocket Internet Explorer Web browser over the Verizon Wireless NationalAccess data network.
