Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Psion today announced that it is licensing the EPOC version of the Opera browser. This particular bulletin must be a strong contender for least unexpected news of the year, as Psion operatives have made no secret of the fact that the netBook will use Opera, just as soon as the coding's complete. Opera 4.0 for EPOC went into public beta at the end of February, and the product should be finished in the relatively near future. According to Psion it will be bundled with the netBook and Series 7 ranges, and will be available separately for the 5mx and other models (which it is already, from Opera, of course). The bundling aspect does of course mean that it's likely to be a couple more months before the netBook and Series 7 can be regarded as feature-complete, and this is of particular significance for the netBook, which is intended as a mobile notebook substitute for volume sales to corporate customers. Effectively, Psion has been running a beta program of the netBook with potential customers since it was launched last year, so we can expect this to continue for a while. We can maybe even expect new versions of the machine to turn out to be the ones that really chalk up volume sales. ® Related Stories Opera goes public with EPOC browser beta Be to bundle Opera Web browser
