Sharky2009 writes “VMware is developing virtualisation for smartphones which can run any two OSes — Windows Mobile, Android or Linux — at once. The idea is to have your work applications and home applications all running insider their own VMs and running at the same time so you can access any app any time. VMware says: ‘We don’t think dual booting will be good enough — we’ll allow you to run both profiles at the same time and be able to switch between them by clicking a button,’ he said. ‘You’ll be able to get and make calls in either profile – work or home – as they will both be live at any given point in time.’”

Also mentioned in February of this year, but now the company’s announced a target of 2012 for mass production.
