The virtualization community has different opinions on the value of running a remote desktop inside a tiny screen like the one that the Apple iPhone offers.
Nonetheless when Citrix presented the idea for the first time at the Application Delivery Conference 2008, even if it was just a trick, it raised a lot of attention.
On stage the company hinted at a new ICA client delivered as a native iPhone application, but never made an official statement or suggested a release date.
Now the project Braeburn, this is how it’s called internally, becomes official: Citrix is developing a Receiver for the iPhone.
More than that Citrix teamed up with Apple to use the unique hardware capabilities of this mobile device.
The company set up an entire community website around this project, but stays vague about the release date, suggesting a generic H1 2009 but here a hint for you.
