Where's problem, I see that they can:
but with root access, but it's not big deal.
Can You run it with root access to have network connect functionality?

You are correct that with root access it can be done; however, this is not a supported feature and requires a modified device in order to utilize the service. It is not expected that all users would know how, or desire to complete the activity, to root their devices.
To answer the other part of your question, no, L3 functionality is not available on a rooted Android through Junos Pulse.

Juniper could make the Android client like Windows Mobile and have client/server connectivity with SAM, specifically JSAM for Android. This is the way Sonicwall does their Aventail client for Android. It works great.

Interestingly there's an SSH tunnel application in the market which allows you to tunnel certain apps unrooted or the entire system (rooted) through the tunnel available in the market: http://lifehacker.com/5799888/ssh-tunnel-is-the-ea
It uses local-port mapping a-la JSAM. For now why not change the Junos Application to do this as well?

According to some recent posts on various forums (including a comment for Junos Pulse in the Android Market), L3 is now available in Junos Pulse for rooted users. I have not had an opportunity to test this yet. No it is not a solution for the typical users but would at least allow some of us to do some testing.

I now get prompted for root access when I start the application, but unfortunately still don't get an L3 tunnel (Droid 1). "Status" shows that VPN is "Disconnected" even though I can access the Intranet via the built-in browser. I do have a rooted phone.

Yeah, I just tried it on my rooted droid incredible and got the same thing. It asked me to allow root access then installed some vpn plugin and prompted me to reboot my phone. Following the reboot I am seeing the same thing as you. Ultimately RDP is what we are after.

I can confirm L3 connectivity (tunnel) works on rooted phones. A bunch of us here that support Juniper's SSL VPN platform have rooted Android phones and it worked right away for us.
Also, I'm now able to install the Pulse client on Honeycomb (3.1) through the market, but my tablet isn't rooted, so no tunnel is started.

Very interested in the settings you have on your Juniper for this to work. I have a rooted tablet with Pulse but am not getting handed an IP address from our VPN. It appears that all I am getting is the portal to our published directories and not a true VPN connection.
Did you have to change many settings in the Client Roles to get Pulse running properly?

There are multiple RDP clients available on the Market. You just need an IP connection to the network where the server resides. Pulse isn't quite there yet it would seem. JSAM will most likely never be an option since Android doesn't support Java.
JSAM aside, is there a way to remote desktop from an android device?
