CeBIT PC companies need to start planning their escape from the desktop, the CTO of Fujitsu Siemens Computers warned today.
Joseph Reger told journalists at CeBIT that virtualised client PC environments which could be carried on small devices were likely to take a big bite out of traditional client PCs.

Technologies are emerging that will allow users to upload their settings, documents, applications, etc, onto a portable device - say a phone or even a flash drive - and put their desktop in their pocket.

They could then activate their environment as they moved from location to location, say on some kind of thin client setup in their company's office, or through something similar in a hotel room. While the iPhone, or Samsung's and Nokia's latest phones pointed towards what this device might eventually look like, no one had cracked the problem yet, Reger said.

Nevertheless, said Reger: "In the future, we will be dealing with less devices [and] PC vendors need to learn how to deal with that." More
