as the topic title indicates when is the vmware view client for winRT going to be released? many people want this. Businesses wishing to adopt MS surface tablets are going to need this. The pricing was announced and it may look like the Pro versions (windows 8 x86) may be too much for some businesses. As a result they may want to purchase the win RT versions, as they are much cheaper, however they lack the vmware view client since there is currently no way to make x86 applications to run on WinRT.
also are there any plans for a windows phone 8 version as well?
VMware rarely releases product road map information on the forums so the best method of obtaining this information would be from your account representive. They should be able to give you a road map provided you have signed a NDA.
I am also interested in the WinRT and the WP8 versions. The excuse I normally get is that they don't develop for platforms that have such a small user base. But of course, if there were applications for these platforms, more people would get on board. Which one should happen first? People buying the products and expanding the user base or people writing useful applications for them?

I have it installed but have a cert error I can't get past. But it is good news to know that they are close to releasing it!
I just wanted to say that I managed to get past the cert error that you're talking about. Basically, I followed the following steps:
This will install the required certificate and stick the application on the Start Screen. Hope this helps.
The app was approved by Microsoft tonight and is now listed in the Windows Store. We will be publishing a blog post soon with more information on the client. The quick summary is that (a) it is only a Tech Preview, (b) it is RDP-only, and (c) you need to have a fully verifiable View Connection Server certificate and tunnel server certificate (if Secure Tunnel is enabled) to use it. The last part is due to Microsoft's requirements for Windows Store apps.
I hope you all enjoy using the client and find it useful. We have spent a lot of time on it and look forward to improving it more in 2013.
