Toshiba has announced software that allows the user to remotely control a PC from a cell phone. This interesting software, called the Ubiquitous Viewer, is installed on the cell phone and a PC and creates a virtual screen on the phone that shows the entire PC desktop. Users can check email and edit documents right on the phone as the software creates a virtual QWERTY keyboard on the number pad. The phone’s cursor pad acts as a mouse so the user can have a complete interaction with the PC. The Viewer will wake computers that have Wake on Lan enabled meaning you can turn on the PC from the phone. The software will be available in March in Japan but I have a feeling this is one technology that we may see in the West before long.
