3D Smartphones loaded with VMware virtualization

It’s a known fact that by 2013 Smartphones are set to become the principle form of web access leaving PCs and laptops in the dust. That’s one reason why enterprise cloud heavyweight VMware entered into a strategic relationship with LG in December 2010 to address enterprise mobility across a range of LG Devices.

The result is that employees at large companies will be able to use their phones under two different profiles: Personal and Corporate.

This marriage of private and corporate domains is a win-win situation for both the employer and the employee. It also won hearts and minds at the recent Mobile World Congress earlier in February where LG showcased the globe’s first 3D Smartphone called the Optimus 3D.

The Optimus has a 5MP lens camera, which allows you to capture 3D images and record 3D video; glasses are optional. Shooting and viewing in 3D is a breeze but it also allows you to share content via an HDMI 1.4 connection on 3D TVs and monitors as well as upload and stream on YouTube’s 3D channel at youtube.com/3D.

Besides the ‘wow’ factor of having your phone transform images and photos into 3D, the phone allows a user to run two Android operating systems simultaneously, with one for personal use and the other controlled by the corporate IT administrator.

Users can easily switch between isolated work and personal phones by pressing a Work VM icon or a Home icon. This phone-in-a-phone implementation will allow two phone numbers to be used seamlessly on a single device.

According to the VMware site many CIOs are seeing an increase in employee requests to use personal devices to access corporate content.

“While corporate owned devices will not disappear any time soon, employee-owned devices will increase dramatically forcing enterprises to figure out a way to safely and securely provision the right applications, data, services and management policies onto employee-owned devices,” said VMware.

The only question left to ask is: When are they gonna make us a holographic phone with virtualization features? Our guess is pretty soon!
