Amazing stuff. I can imagine a cell phone with a VM for my Work phone and one for my Home phone all on the same device. Better yet, think about what could happen when you get a new phone, save the VM to a microSD card and take the microSD and plug it into your new phone and all of your numbers and config (and mobile OS) go with it.
