VMware to bring virtualisation to mobile phones
Well-known virtualisation software provider VMware is set to break new ground with virtualisation coming to mobile phones through the new VMware Mobile Virtualisation Platform (MVP.)

Additionally, VMware say, end users will benefit by being able to run multiple profiles on the same phone for instance, one for personal use and one for work use.
