Thanks Peter.

Quick update, it's either itap or Desktop Connect. I've emailed both about Virtual Box support. itap folks kindly/honestly say VB is not yet properly supported, with some users reporting success but others reporting severe graphical problems — say they will officially support VB in a future release. Desktop Connect folks gave me a slightly open response of 'yes this should work fine with Desktop Connect V 2.0, please let us know if you experience any issues.'

[Damn, just been out for drinks with a whole swarm of iPad/iPhone developers, I knew there was something else I should have been picking their brains over]
