Toshiba Develops Software To Operate PC Via Mobile Phone

Jan. 18, 2005

Japanese high-tech giant Toshiba said Tuesday it has developed the world's first software to enable users to operate their computers remotely via mobile phones. Existing mobile phone services only allow users to view files in their computers but not edit them, Toshiba said. The new system compresses data in a computer so that it could be shown on a small mobile phone screen and allow users to make changes, it said. Toshiba plans to make the system commercially available by the end of March for third-generation (3G) mobile phone services.
