Dual boot smartphone by VMWare


VMWare MVP or the Mobile Virtualization Platform is a new venture by VMWare which will soon allow you to run multiple operating systems on your smartphone! The VMWare MVP is an ARM hypervisor which supports multiple ARM architectures, making it uniquely capable of running nearly any smartphone OS available today.
 
It supports ARMv4, ARMv5, ARMv6, and ARMv7 instruction sets, and is capable of running nearly all operating systems used on mobiles such as Android 1.5, Symbian 9.3 / 9.4 / 9.5, Windows CE 5.0 / 6.0, eCos, µITRON, µ-COSII. These can thus run on any system running the VMWare MVP.
 
The advantages of VMWare MVP aren’t just in running multiple OSs on your smartphone, but also in running then in the hypervisor, thus increasing security and making it easier to develop drivers — since they need only be developed for the MVP, after which they can run anywhere.
