Launched late last month in North America, Mobile Complete - the world's leading provider of mobile application testing, monitoring and support solutions for mobile devices and applications - today launched its new interactive Web program dubbed "TryPhone" in Europe as well. TryPhone which contains fully-functional, virtual phones allows users to test-drive mobile devices online before purchasing. Through the TryPhone Web service, individuals have access to a variety of phones, including the not in Europe available T-Mobile Shadow Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone, on which they can press buttons, run programs, and truly experience and compare different handsets.

The service also allows consumers to read reviews, watch demos and compare different devices. A free service, TryPhone serves not only to educate consumers about the different handsets and features available in the marketplace, but also promotes a simpler, less stressful purchasing experience. Mobile consumers will no longer be burdened with long retail queues and phone replicas that aren't true to form.

Unlike flash-based or other emulation programs, TryPhone handsets leverage Mobile Complete's award-winning DeviceAnywhere Direct-to-Device technology, which provides mobile application developers with remote access to more than 1,000 real mobile handsets connected to live networks which are accessible over the Internet. To develop the TryPhone virtual devices, Mobile Complete built an automatic web crawler that scans each DeviceAnywhere handset and creates a blueprint of all the pathways on the phones. These pathways are then leveraged to create fully interactive, virtual phones and respective applications.

This launch marks the initial phase of the TryPhone service, featuring the Nokia N95 and the LG Prada. Phones will be continuously added to the portfolio on a weekly basis.

Cheers ~ Arne
