New Blog Post Showing Sun Ray Laptop over 3G and VPN to VDI 3 and Multimedia

A new post is on my blog at http://blogs.sun.com/jreilly/ with a video showing a Sun Ray Gobi 8 Laptop accessing Sun VDI 3 over 3G Wireless and VPN.  Then running multimedia redirection technology.  The Sun Ray protocol combined with a laptop and 3G wireless can deliver a excellent hosted virtual desktop environment to mobile users.  Granted,  good 3G wireless coverage is required.
