Hi

I pretend to buy an ipad but I would know a couple of things before doing it:

1. Does ipad support connection using windows terminal server and/or remote destop?

2. Can I connect an ipad to internet using my cel phone as a modem?

Thanks in advance.

1. Yes there are various apps to connect to a Windows computer using remote desktop or terminal services/RCP

2.  Connecting your cell as a modem can only be done if you jailbreak your iPad.

1. You will need to use an app to do it but yes.  An iPad can remotely connect to a pc but very few options exist to do it the other way.

2.  Not unless the cell phone functions as a wifi hotspot.

Jailbreaking the iPad has nothing to do with it. The Curve can't function as a hotspot as far as I know.

Heh.  FTA: "Save yourself a whole lot of grief and get an iPhone."

It may or may not work with all Blackberries, too.

I've installed this on three ipad's allowing clients to connect to their Windows Server in terminal server mode. It works very well and you can't beat the price.
