LG Revolution Smartphone Has Two Service Options; Workplace and Personal

LG has used new virtualisation technology in its Revolution smartphone that comes with twin personas: work and personal.

The company has used VMware's Horizon Mobile software to transform the device, as reported by InformationWeek.

The device was demonstrated during the 2012 New York CES Press Preview event in Manhattan. The LG Revolution was shown running both the corporate and personal instances, on two separate devices.

The LG Revolution shown at the demonstration ran on Android 2.2 Froyo and was virtualised using VMware's Hypervisor.

"Being selected as an Honoree by the 2012 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards is a continuation of LG's prowess in mobile device manufacturing as well as integration of mobility solutions from our ecosystem of partners," said Ki S. Kim, corporate vice president and head of Global Enterprise Mobility Solutions (B2B) at LG Electronics.

"Clearly, LG's intense efforts channeled into mobile virtualisation development with VMware have paid off. We are proud to be recognised as the innovation leader for enterprise mobility solutions," he added.

Interestingly, the device has been named the 2012 CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree at the Manhattan press event.

Organisations struggle to deal with corporate and personal devices at the workplace. The technology would let companies deal with the problem by providing workers with a secure environment.
