VMware on Wednesday launched its VMware View software for Apple's iPad as it plays catch-up to tablet virtualisation products from Citrix and Wyse.
The software, available on Apple's App Store, gives iPad users access to Windows desktops, applications and data via virtualisation.
VMware View for the iPad will include access to Windows virtual desktops via PC-over-IP display protocol and multitouch support and on-screen track pad so users can use a traditional mouse set-up.
