LG Can Help You Ditch Your Work Phone Using a Virtual Android OS

By Jamie Condliffe on at

LG have been showing off a Revolution that runs a virtual Android machine. So what? So, that means you can run a work phone as a virtual device on your personal phone — and junk your crappy second handset.

Just like running a remote desktop on your personal computer when you need to work from home, LG has decided that the time — and the technology — has come to do the same with your phone, reports The Verge from CES.

Running a VMware virtual Android machine, LG's Revolution allows users to run their own smartphone, then click over to a totally sandboxed "work" phone that's managed by an employer.

The best news is that this isn't some crazy-arse prototype: LG are going to be launching a phone with this tech "in the coming months" according to The Verge. The feature will, apparently, only be available on new LG devices, so you'll have to upgrade if you want to ditch your work phone for good. [The Verge]
