As most of you know Citrix Receiver is a universal client technology that provides secure access, self-service and provisioning of data, apps and desktops to an end user anywhere from any device. Citrix has been focused on delivering an exhilarating end-user experience by developing Receivers optimized for more than a billion devices irrespective of form factor (desktops, notebooks, tablets, smartphones, thin-clients, …) and the platform (Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, etc. …)
In continuance with the above efforts to make the Receiver experience across all devices, mobile or otherwise, Citrix has been developing a native Receiver client for the webOS mobile operating system for devices like HP’s recently announced TouchPad tablet. However, recent news from HP regarding their plans to ‘….discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones.’, has prompted Citrix to take a wait-and-see approach on further Receiver development for webOS until HP’s future plans for the platform becomes clearer.
Stay tuned as we make ongoing announcements to make Receiver’s ubiquity a reality!
