    OK, so maybe that's a catchy name for it, but how come we don't have one yet?

    For the dev-types out there, how involved would this be as a project? Anybody got an estimate?

    I would love a remote desktop app on my pre. One of the things I really miss from my nokia n810 was the rDesktop port. Now that any linux app can be run on the phone, I guess rdesktop could be run like that, however I think a native app using the pdk would be more useful.

    I'd love real RDP on my pre, but it doesn't do me any real good until I can have VPN also.

    Me too. I would pay some serious $$$ for a good RDP, VPN program.

    As a consolation, you can run MobileTS through the Classic app. I have not been able to verify if Mergic VPN works through Classic though.

    Well since X now runs on the Pre, someone can surely port rdesktop over.

    Usability would be an issue though.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Honestly your best ave for effort is either going to be logmein or a vnc port once the PDK is out in force.

    I use Logmein, and there is a apple iphone logmein application that could be ported to the pre using the PDK. Logmein makes the application. With enough support maybe they could port it to the pre easily.

    I would definitely like an app like this as well!

    Though I think the name would be better as RDPre

    I used to run rdesktop at 800 × 480 on a 4 inch screen, and it was completely usable. I think for the pre, running at around that resolution, but zoomed out, would work great as long as pinch to zoom was enabled. hopefully we see a port of rdesktop soon!

    also, I know vnc is nice and all, but it is not rdp. not only are most people here asking about vpn/rdp because of business use (where vnc is not an option) but rdp is simply better than vnc in almost every aspect.

    I really hope that the existence of a vnc client doesn't halt the development of an rdp client.
