VMWare has plans to develop virtualization technology which enables a couple of operating systems to run simultaneously on a single cellphone. They are currently not at the promised land just yet, but are slowly working towards that direction by optimizing the virtualization technology in order for the incoming/outgoing data from each OS to be managed efficiently and securely, while ensuring that switching from one OS to another will be a seamless and intuitive experience. VMware hopes to test its dual OS phones in an enterprise environment from 2011 onwards, while the mass market might expect this cellphone to enter production a year after that.
