VMware shows smartphone virtualization on the LG Revolution

Posted by Charbax – January 15, 2012

VMware now supports a secure enterprise version of Android at the same time as you can run your personal "hackable" version of Android, both on the same device in a fully secure virtualized way.

  • VMware has announced partnerships with both LG and Verizon on the effort. It appears the partnership is going strong, as LG is showing off its Verizon Revolution phone running Android virtual machines in VMware’s MVP. While the Revolution is just a demo, LG says the technology will be available through Verizon and Telefonica in “the coming months” on new devices only. The main difference between the two carriers’ solutions will be that Verizon’s will use only one telephone number, but Telefonica’s can enable two numbers thanks to dual-SIM cards.

  • LG and VMware have been working on this since February, but the big news
    today is that Verizon and Telefonica wil be launching a phone with the
    tech “in the coming months.” No one’s getting more specific than that,
    and we’re told it’ll be on new LG devices only the Revolution you see
    here is just a proof of concept. Still, it’s interesting, and should
    make that whole work phone split a little easier to
    manage.
