We are starting to see a bit more in terms of using an Android handset in the workplace. While the Android adoption may take some time, we are currently seeing apps that will help to keep your work and personal data seperate. The latest in this bunch has arrived by way of VMware. The app is called WMware Horizon Mobile and the app has been announced for Verizon Wireless users.
Specifically, the WMware Horizon Mobile app will be available for Verizon users provided they are carrying an LG Intuition or Motorola RAZR M smartphone. At present the app is only supported on these two handsets, however there was a mention of additional device support arriving “throughout the year.” More important for now, WMware Horizon Mobile will create what is being referred to as a “virtualized operating system” on your device.
In simpler terms, this app will allow the user to keep their work and personal profiles seperate. Additionally, the work profile will be controlled and managed by your IT department. This IT department managed section will have its own virtualized operating system as well as its own applications and policies. The key here though, security.
“Having a virtual workspace available on smartphones using the VMware Horizon platform gives us an unobtrusive way to more securely offer applications to mobile care givers and maintain control of the data while minimizing worry about potential data breaches,” said Edward Ricks, chief information officer, Beaufort Memorial Hospital. “This dual persona approach gives us full control over our data on personally owned or corporate-owned mobile devices without requiring us to unnecessarily manage the entire device.”
Sticking with the topic of security. The app is said to have “enterprise-grade security for Android” and in addition to simply keeping the work and personal data separate, the app will also encrypt the work side. All that being said, the VMware Horizon Mobile app brings a licensing fee which starts at 5 per user. Those looking to get setup will able to do so through Verizon Wireless as well as with a VWware reseller.
Otherwise, looking at some of the similar solutions and we have the recently updated BlackBerry Secure Work Space and Samsung KNOX. Both of these items have support for Android handsets and they are similar to the VMware offering in that they keep the work and personal data seperate with the work place data being encrypted.

PayPal has announced the availability of a new Android SDK. This release is aimed at developers and PayPal notes that it will be able to offer “everything a developer needs to accept both PayPal and credit card payments.” On the flip side though, while the release of the SDK is for developers, it should also serve to improve the payment process for a user looking to pay through PayPal. While there isn’t any timeline as to when this will show up in apps, the SDK will be available beginning on May 15th.
Basically, at this point it is up to the developers to make use of the SDK. This means developers will be able to set things up so the user will be able to make a PayPal payment without having to leave the app. Or in simpler terms, the user will have a streamlined checkout experience. Perhaps even nicer, the user will have multiple options when it comes to making that payment.
They will be able to use a PayPal account or use a credit or debit card by snapping a picture. As far as taking a picture, this will be done using the card.io technology. When using the card.io setup users only have to hold their credit card up and let the app scan the card. For those who may be worried about scanning your credit card, PayPal did mention that is a secure process.
The above image shows a basic example of the PayPal payment setup in an Android app. While the streamlined checkout process will likely be beneficial to the end user, PayPal has also said this will allow developers to make use of a payment solution that scales with them. Further details here mention how they have “128 million account holders across more than 50 financial networks in 190 markets and in 25 currencies around the globe.”
While the end user waits for this to begin showing up in Android apps, here are a few points that developers should know — the PayPal SDK for Android will support v2.2 (Froyo) or later and there will be documentation as well as integration details available on the newly updated PayPal developer site.
