Dual OSes Headed to Smartphones Via Virtualization

A company called VMware is working on technology that would allow a smartphone to run two different operating systems concurrently. Such a device would not allow dual-boot (the ability to start one OS or the other), but to actually allow users to actively switch between one active OS or the other based on what applications they'd like to be using. Right now, VMware is targeting Windows Mobile, Android and mobile Linux as possible dual OS combinations. Part of the impetus behind the idea is to allow individuals have what is in effect a separate device for their work life and another for their home life — only there'd be only one piece of hardware fulfilling both needs.
