VMWare has a mobile solution that may finally bridge the gap between IT managers and users. It is well known that IT departments usually don’t like to support an array of heterogeneous devices, and it is a not a surprise that “business phones” are not really what employees want these days. The status-quo is a choice between two handsets (and two plans) or one that is “uncool”, or at least not loved.
With VMWare’s mobile solution platform, a number of Android handsets will be able to have a dual personality (personal/professional). VMWare can create a second virtual Android environment on the same phone, making two Android OSes are running at the same time. One would be for personal use, while the other can be under complete IT control. In essence, this would help solving the two handset dilemma, at least for Android users.
