Will Mobile Virtualisation ever be available to consumers?

I posted about this ages ago, and since then I haven’t heard or seen much about MVP from VMWare. It seems like such a good idea to me, but I wonder whether it will ever be a realitty? Or rather, will it ever be a reality that is available direct to consumers?

I guess what I don’t understand is why virtualisation on the desktop is so different from on the handheld? Surely something like MVP simply brings an additional layer of choice to the consumer in the same way as being about to choose what applications you run on your device?

I’d love to see this kind of tachnology come to handhelds, but I don’t think I’m going to hold my breath for it though.

  1. StyleTap looks promising. Palm OS on my iphone… Bhajis Loops on my iPhone… yes. But sadly it seems to be forever in development =(
