VMware Plans Smartphone Virtualization
Virtualization on servers and even desktops is hardly a new concept, but VMware is seeking to expand the technology into the mobile realm by deploying virtualization for smartphone users. One potential scenario for smartphone virtualization is simultaneously hosting two platform profiles or even two different operating systems - for example, having one for work-related tasks and another for personal use.
"We don't think dual booting will be good enough - we'll allow you to run both profiles at the same time and be able to switch between them by clicking a button," he said. "You'll be able to get and make calls in either profile – work or home – as they will both be live at any given point in time."
VMware has successfully demonstrated Android and Windows Mobile on a last generation smartphone with 128MB or RAM, Krishnamurti said, however, for production, 256MB of RAM would likely be the recommended spec.
