There’s no denying that there are pros and cons to Apple’s iPad, but here’s one more positive point for it. If you’re running Citrix XenDesktop or XenApp in the office, the iPad is going to be rather useful to you, thanks to its 1024 x 768 screen. At that resolution, it meets the minimum requirement for a good Citrix client, it’s cheaper than some Windows-based netbooks, and let’s not forget, most netbooks run at a lower resolution than the iPad. With that in place, you could effectively fiddle with your Windows 7 computer via your iPad while you’re on the go. Do note that we’re talking about remotely controlling your computer here, not installing Windows 7 on the iPad (though we’re sure many folks out there will try to achieve that). Could the iPad become the next big thing for IT professionals around the globe?
