    I've never had a smartphone, but am interested in the Pre. I need telnet and remote desktop on it (I've read the post on remote desktop). Will telnet or putty be available on the Pre?

    It would be nice but don't hold your breath. Hopefully we'll get a 3rd party solution. There was software for Remote Desktop on the Treos but I never came across one that worked well.

    There is also an app for an ssh terminal but I was never able to connect to the server I wanted to connect to so I think we'll just have to wait and see.

    I'm all for having the app

    I've used the MSTSC client on the Treo Pro and it works fine, but with the limited screensize of a treo it will allways be a bit cumbersome with lots of scrolling...
    But it can be a life saver at times..

    Telnet/putty would be nice too

    I'm also not doing it on a WiFi connection and it was through a random 3rd party app.

    I use pssh for Telnet/putty secure connections to a desktop from Palm OS. It works great. I also use PalmVNC for controlling remote desktops.

    At the very least, I'll be porting these apps to my Pre once the SDK kit is out - if no one else does it before I get the chance. I have a large number of other apps planned, in the beginning - I plan on running them under Classic.

    What I really need is the ability to combine a DynDNS Dynamic IP with a UltraVNC listening socket for remote incoming desktop requests. That's my real goal.

    How long do u think it'll take to make the telnet once the SDK is out? This is probably the only must have I have for the phone. I'm debating between the Pre and the Touch Pro 2.

    I found MobileTS worked very well, better than Finster's Remote Desktop for WinMo, but I don't know if it will work under Classic.

    I would like a Cisco VPN client, but I'm not holding my breath and I doubt AnthaVPN will work under Classic, but I will definitely try these.

    I'd like to think that something like this will happen, but to me, Palm has something else in mind, even if the Pre was capable of it. I've migrated from iPhone to G1, and there is a VERT noticeable difference on the type of Apps that are released on the different platforms. The G1s are most definitely more geeky/nerdy and involve stuff that Telnet + Putty have to do with. The iPhone's are more formal, playful, and slick, and don't provide nearly as much nerd factor. I have to side on the fact that I think Palm will be much more like Apple with these type of apps.

    If Crowza or someone else doesn't port over any ssh apps, I'll likely do it myself. I'm not sure how involved the sdk will be, but I don't think it should be hard considering it already has ssh installed(or can be installed easily)
    Even just some type of terminal app where we can run ssh from the commandline would be great
