A startup Nivio has started to offer virtual Windows desktop to tablets, phones or any other connected device.
Nivio, a cloud service provider, has launched a new service that will allow users to access their Windows based PCs through tablets and smartphones. The new service, named nDesktop, will be available for Android phones and tablets running OS version 2.3 and above, iPhone 4 and above, and iPads. It can also be accessed through HTML-5 compatible browsers.
"The nDesktop allows users to switch on and access a full Windows desktop from all their devices in less than 30 seconds," Nivio said in a press release.
Besides, Nivio has announced two new services. With the new Nivio nDrive, users can create a document using their laptop, save it, then edit it with their iPad at home or work offline and synch the files later. nDrive lets you share files, pictures and other docs with friends and coworkers.
Users also benefit from the new nApp Store. The app store has some free apps like Adobe Acrobat, while others are paid. Users will need to log in through simple User name and password to access all that they have on their desktops.
Currently Nivio is offering beta users a special launch promotion of nDesktop for up to 10 hours at $5 (Rs 250 approximately) per month with an additionally discounted price for students at $2 (Rs 100 approximately). This promotion also includes 10 GB of free storage and nDrive to ensure users can effortlessly synchronise their data across all their devices.
The services will be available from 14th of next month.
India specific pricing of the services has not been announced, though the services can be used anywhere in the world. India specific pricing would certainly be better at attracting users to the service.
Nivio has many India connections including a co-founder of Indian origin and many Indian developers working from New Delhi.
