VMware, LG team up on virtualization in phones

LG has teamed up with VMware to install the latter's mobile virtualization software on some of the former's Android handsets. This will let corporate IT departments install a second profile that is secure for access to the employers' enterprise networks. BlackBerry handsets are thus far the only ones that enjoy a strong corporate presence thanks to their ultra-secure Enterprise Server connection.

The software will let users revert back to their personal profiles after work hours. If it proves successful enough, LG may also offer VMware on other platforms, potentially including Windows Phone 7. [via PhoneArena]
