Device Mapping Remote Desktop on the Touch Diamond
If you’ve ever managed a server or helped a friend with some computer problems remotely, you might be familiar with “Remote Desktop”. This software is based on Terminal Services and allows you to log into any supported system (with proper credentials and firewall ports open) with a small bit of Remote Desktop client software. Versions of this have often been available for Windows Mobile and Windows CE. The problem has always been trying to use a full desktop operating system user interface on such a small low resolution screen.
Well, the HTC Touch Diamond now has a 480×640 pixel screen, that’s certainly plenty for managing a server. The Touch Diamond also happens to include a new version of the Remote Desktop software for Windows Mobile.
The hot new feature here is that you can now map the mobile device’s storage to the remote computer. As you can see in the image below, I’m logged in and controlling a remote Windows Server and I’m browsing my phone’s file system using Windows Explorer remotely. You can now easily transfer files to or from your Windows Mobile phone! This could be very useful as I’m sure you can imagine.
