VMWare Virtualizes Smartphones

In the following video demo, VMWare introduces their new virtual machine solution for smartphones. Just like their other virtualization products, this one will allow users to load multiple operating systems on a single mobile device. Unfortunately, for now, the product will only work on smartphones featuring processors of ARM Cortex-A8 or Cortex-A9 designs.

  1. As cool as that is, I can’t help thinking that this is actually a perfect advert for a netbook ;-)

    Essentially the same portability – you can’t slip it in your pocket, but you wouldn’t want to use two OSes (even phone ones) in everyday life anyway. You’d only need it on extended trips, for which you could take a netbook.

    But netbooks are far faster and have much more responsiveness.
