As part of its ongoing efforts to simplify the development of mobile content and applications, dotMobi -- the consortium behind the only Internet address created specifically for mobile phones -- is partnering with Mobile Complete to bring a special benefit to the thousands of members of the dotMobi Developer Forum (dev.mobi): free access to Mobile Complete's "DeviceAnywhere" remote handset testing service.
Mobile Complete, the pioneer and leading provider of mobile testing, monitoring and support solutions aimed at improving the mobile experience, is making five free hours of testing available to any registered user of dev.mobi.
Mobile Complete's DeviceAnywhere service provides users with connection to, and interaction with, live mobile handsets over the Internet. Developers simply log in, choose from the hundreds of available devices and the global networks currently supported in DeviceAnywhere, and start testing.
DeviceAnywhere enables users to remotely press device buttons, view LCD displays, listen to ringtones and speakers, connect / disconnect batteries and play videos all from the convenience of a desktop computer. With DeviceAnywhere, users have complete virtual access to all interfaces of a device, similar to having that device in their hands. As a result, developers are able to bring mobile applications to market faster, more easily and at lower costs than previously possible.
