Or.. You could use Splashtop remote desktop and control your PC and after the initial purchase there's no monthly fees.

Splashtop is only as fast as your home network, tablet and computer.
So for most people here, I think a 30fps experience is more than sufficient.

@joytech22 can the user connect to another PC with splashtop? (PC to PC)

I love the way the misleading title makes it sounds like Android users are behind the curve when as Joytech22 states they have been able to use a better service for a long time. Hopefully one of these days iCrap will catch up and finally allow Java and flash, truly ubiquitous productivity services, run in their devices. How about adding more connectivity on those locked-down Apple devices?

hold on, They are saying this was announced yesterday??? I bought my wife an HTC Flyer about 2 weeks ago and this was already one it when I did the update to honeycomb.

How did they announce it yesterday when it seems to have been out for 2 weeks at minimum (when i bought and updated the flyer)?

onlive desktop isnt an rdp app(exactly), you are accessing a vm hosted by onlive, the free version gives you 2 gigs of storage and access to productivity apps(could reaaaaly use adobe reader). It is kinda tough to complain about free. And while cool on android, the rediculously limited ipad is where it shines.

For rdp tho, splashtop is flawless.

For RDP - I've been using TeamViewer. I had it on my iPhone over a year ago before I switched, and I have it now on my Thunderbolt. It works fantastically - only downfall is that the free version leaves a message on the target machine every time you disconnect saying "this was the free version, if you are using this for corporate use, please pay for it..." blah blah blah. It's annoying because if I connect to my home HTPC and then disconnect. It leaves that message up on the screen, and kind of messes with my wife the next time she tries to use the HTPC.

So I might look into this "Splashtop" you all seem to be raving about just to see if it doesn't leave that warning message behind. But other than that, I have been MORE than happy with TeamViewer.
