RIM announced today that they have made available Citrix Receiver for the BlackBerry PlayBook in beta form. The app is available in BlackBerry App World and offers IT managers enterprise virtualization from the PlayBook. With the Citrix Receiver, users can access virtual desktops on servers with Windows as well as an organization’s enterprise apps.
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
