in brief Citrix used its thin client technology to demonstrate an Apple iPhone running Windows XP, at the recent Citrix Application Delivery Conference in Melbourne.

Windows XP, seen below running on the iPhone, was loaded using Citrix's thin client desktop software XenDesktop. Using the Citrix ICA client — a UNIX application that allows devices to access Windows sessions on a Citrix server — the presenter was able to run Windows on the iPhone via Wi-Fi.

The iPhone's "pinch" controls also work, which
makes it relatively easy to zoom in and out of the desktop.

The iPhone demo was part of the opening keynote titled Directions in Virtualisation & Application Delivery in the Dynamic Datacentre.
