Motorola to offer phones with VMware hypervisor, too

Nancy Gohring | March 6, 2012
Motorola Mobility has joined LG and Samsung among the companies building VMware's hypervisor into their phones. The move is part of a larger push at Motorola to cater to business users.

It also now offers resources for in-house developers of enterprise apps. Motorola already has extensive infrastructure through its Motodev program to support developers, Wyatt said. The company took some of those resources relevant for in-house developers and added additional support materials to offer Motodev for Enterprise, she said.

Motorola is coordinating its enterprise efforts through its Enterprise Business Unit, now headed by Wyatt. The company hopes to play a role in helping businesses navigate the mobile environment. "These are new challenges" for IT administrators, Wyatt said. IT administrators have only recently been faced with having to figure out how to manage phones that workers bring to the office and how to pay for the use of them.

It's important that companies like Motorola work hard to meet these new needs of IT workers, she said. "We'll have to adapt. The alternative is workers will send their email to a Gmail account, and then we'll have all failed," she said.
