Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Motorola is to embed Citrix’s ICA client in its wireless handsets and smartphones following a licence agreement with the thin client company. Initially Motorola intends to use ICA in order to give users of its iDEN wireless system access to Win32 apps, but ICA is likely to be built into a wide range of future products, including cellular ones. Motorola’s iDEN is a two-way wireless system which the company sells in many parts of the world, but not European ones. The company offers iDEN handsets that combine cellular, wireless and pager in the one unit, so the addition of Citrix adds yet another feature to these ‘do everything’ products. In the fairly near future Motorola will be offering ICA clients that reside on iDEN users’ notebooks, following this up with versions embedded in the handset later, and then moving on to more strictly cellular-based ICA implementations. ®
