VMware View To Support Kindle Fire

It may be a few days before Christmas, but it's been a busy week when it comes to enterprise-class vendor support for media tablets and mobility solutions.

VMware Inc. is releasing software to allow Kindle Fire users to view virtualized versions of Windows and other operating systems on Amazon's media tablet.

VMware announced this week that a VMware View Client for Android will soon be available in the Amazon Appstore for Android to make it easier for Kindle Fire users to install the client and access virtual desktops.

The announcement came as VMware unveiled across-the-board updates to VMware View with new clients for Kindle Fire, Mac and Linux, and updated clients for Android and iPad.

Also this week, Citrix released GoToMyPC for Android tablet and Citrix Receiver for Android, expanding that company's roster of supported clients.
