RIM Introduces Citrix Receiver For BlackBerry PlayBook




By Mauricio

RIM let me know they’ve announced Citrix Receiver for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet, available in BlackBerry App World as a beta in the Test Center. This app offers IT managers enterprise virtualization from the PlayBook so they can can get access to virtual desktops on servers running Microsoft Windows or an organization’s enterprise apps, enabling standalone app virtualization. Features include:

  • Multitasking– similar to the PlayBook’s multi-tab browsing experience, the Citrix Receiver allows for multitasking between virtualized apps and desktops, and between multiple desktops themselves – all on the tablet’s seven-inch screen
  • Single “Sign On” Access – one single sign on access point provides full access to virtual apps and desktops
  • IT Controlled Built-in Enterprise App Hosting – IT managers can give self-service access to enterprise apps, much like you select apps from BlackBerry App World
  • Security – the unique FIPS-certified BlackBerry PlayBook tablet security protocols protect your data when using the Citrix Receiver
  • Peripheral Integration in High Definition – by pairing a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, you’ll gain full access to your remote desktop and apps on the PlayBook’s brilliant HD screen
