AT&T Toggle Lets Your Smartphone Lead a Double Life

AT&T today announced a new service called Toggle. Toggle separates personal information and work information on a smartphone (or tablet), and lets users easily switch between the two different modes. When in "Personal Mode," users can send text messages, watch video content, play games, and perform other activities that might not be possible on a work device. In "Work Mode," users have access to business-focused tools, such as email, business apps, calendars, and other company-specific apps and/or services. The tool allows IT departments to manage which employees have access to certain company resources; allows them to add, update, and delete business apps on employee personal devices remotely; and also allows IT to wipe all work data/information stored in the Work Mode section of a phone, while leaving the personal data intact. AT&T Toggle can be used on devices running Android 2.2 and higher, and with any service provider. It is similar to BlackBerry Balance, which is available to RIM's smartphones.

Hmmm

Whereas this function is already available with HTC Sense enabled phones...this will be helpful for people with iSucks and Blackberries. Wonder what the price point will be on this?

It is similar to BlackBerry Balance, which is available to RIM's smartphones.

Read the article, this is for androids and is actually similar to a feature already on blackberrys. Im not familiar with the feature on HTC ...
