CTIA09 RealVNC for Android

While walking the floor at CTIA09, we spotted the RealVNC logo and wandered over to see what they had to offer for Android. Turns out a lot. RealVNC was showing off their new cross-platform desktop to mobile control scheme. Using your desktop, you can wirelessly connect to and control a mobile device complete with touch input and hard key access.

The potential uses here are many. A company could use RealVNC control at an enterprise level to assist with technical issues on their employee’s phone or provide support for a confused user. The entire screen of the mobile device is shown in real time on the desktop, giving the help desk or service tech instant insight into the device without needing to be anywhere near it. Check out the video below for a quick preview of the service.
