What we say
Wyse PocketCloud™ enables complete access to your Windows PC, virtual machine or Remote Desktop Services from your mobile device.
-Intuitive User Interface
-High-accuracy Touch Pointer
-Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP 7)
-VMware View Support (Pending Certification)
-VNC Protocol (Tech Preview)
This is a great application for remotely accessing your PC while you are out and about either by RDP (Windows) or VNC and during the Beta period, it's free to use too! You can read a lot more information about the application on the Wyse Product Page, but i've used it on both WiFi and 3G and it works great! You can also download a companion application for Windows from the product page to assist with popping up the virtual keyboard automatically when text input is required.

Also check out LogMeIn Ignition and PhoneMyPC, the other heavyweights in this field. Ignition is personal favourite of mine, albeit I believe it's overpriced amongst it's peers.
Suggested improvements for the next version
When the full release happens, PRICE IT SENSIBLY (a lot lower than LogMeIn Ignition).
