The move means that users of the iPhone can remotely control - as well as run applications on - a desktop PC running Windows!
After that, the iPhone's zooming and panning features allow users to scroll around the remote PC screen, double-clicking the mouse and even entering text in relevant applications.
To enter text into programs, users simply select `Text Input' from the same menu, which will bring up the iPhone's normal keyboard.
Myself I'd prefer a small laptop or Windows PDA to access a PC remotely using VNC, but it does show you what can be done in what is increasingly looking like a must-have mobile phone.
When it eventually arrives in the UK, of course...
