"Our expanded partnership will further enable business end-users to remain productive by delivering a unified digital workspace experience that offers continuity whether they are using the mobile device from a desk connected to a monitor, keyboard and mouse, or in the palm of their hands using touch and gesture interactions - elevating the experience of mobile workers to the next level," Sumit Dhawan, Senior Vice President and General Manager, End-User Computing at VMware, said in a statement.

On-the-go access to Windows, mobile and cloud applications will be delivered from VMware Workspace ONE through a common digital workspace experience.

Samsung on Wednesday launched DeX which can turn Galaxy S8 smartphone into a PC.

It would provide an Android-based, desktop-like experience that enables end-users to seamlessly access apps, edit documents, browse the web, watch videos, reply to messages and more, directly from the smartphone on a larger display, with the ability to use a keyboard and mouse.

Together with VMware Workspace ONE and VMware Horizon, the new Samsung Galaxy 8 smartphone with Samsung DeX can deliver a common digital workspace experience when end-users access their Windows desktops and applications in the office, or Windows, mobile and cloud applications on-the-go.
