Video: Two operating systems on one phone

VMware demos its mobile virtualisation platform at its European conference.


Mobile phone manufacturers are currently "evaluating" new virtualisation technology which would let customers run two operating systems on one phone, or move their phone's contacts, apps and other data from handset to handset more easily.

VMware demoed a Nokia N800 featuring its mobile hypervisor at its VMworld Europe conference in Cannes today, showing Windows CE and Google's Android running at the same time.

Read the full story on mobile virtualisation here, or watch the video below for a quick demo of the system from Julia Alston, VMware's head of mobile virtualisation engineering, straight from the rather noisy show floor in Cannes.
