VMware Android handset virtualization hands-on

VMware and LG's virtualized Android OS demo at MWC 2011 is pretty slick.

Sure, VMware has started with Android and LG, but there's apparently nothing holding them back from offering this on any smartphone platform -- and honestly, we can't wait to see more. But until then, the following video will have to do.
