VMware View on a Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 Tablet

with 7 comments

This week I got a chance to work with the new Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 tablet PC. It has no keyboard, so only working with the onscreen keyboard, but it has a connector for a docking station. In my eyes this means that you could use it as a full Windows client in the future. Currently you can’t buy the tablet but it should come in this year. Anyway I had the chance to test it and of course I wanted to know if this is a good device for VDI. The first action after configuring the WLAN was installing the VMware View 4.6 Client for Windows. As the tablet is running a standard Windows 7 at the moment, there was no problem installing the software.

Installaling, connecting, that’s it! It work really well. On the local Windows instance there was already the onscreen keyboard but in the virtual desktop I had to open it first. But this was just cosmetic. A very cool solution! My virtual desktop is hosted at Terremark in Amsterdam and I wanted to know how the audio/video quality will be on the device. Please check the following video for results.

    Cool. Although I suprised to see how “stop motion” the youtube.com was. Was that the connect at your end, Terrmark or PCoIP….

    It’s the tablet. It’s a prototype and the performance will be much faster when it goes into production.

    I have Q550, but the Windows 7 32-bit does not recognize the Virtual Keyboard.
