Kemal is IMHO correct.  Is there an open source application that works just 
like this .... no ... possibly because of design patents etc.  Possibly 
because no one as ever wanted one till now, so it never got coded.   Myself 
if I want to manipulate my Palm-Top (Nokia 770/n800) I just use ssh, and 
forward an app back to myself if required.  Much as I would a laptop (but 
that's just me.)  As Kemal mentioned vnc-server would give you control of 
the 'desktop' and the ability to do anything you could do directly.
