Cannot unlock tablet as have no internet connection?

I have had a very unfortunate accident with my Samsung Galaxy S2 and the screen has suffered a complete shatter (top to bottom! - was closed in a car door)

I have downloaded and am running Droid@Screen to make sure the phone itself isn't damaged and can see that the screen is sat on the pattern lock screen. Is there a way I can simulate a touchscreen input from the PC?

I just need to unlock the screen then can use Kies Air to remove all of my pics and videos and important files.

Any help would be appreciated, I really need to get these files off :(

    @LiamW Doesn't matter for what reason he needs to bypass the pattern lock, does it? He needs to bypass it (quote: I just need to unlock the screen), and the linked Q gives a lot of examples on how to achieve that. Hence +1 from me to t0mm13b ;)

    @LiamBee if your device is rooted, you can get ADB access in recovery mode. Just follow the link t0mm13b posted -- my answer there has a bunch of possibilities. Though without a working screen, the set is markably reduced...
