Web Service Lets Users Try Out Mobile Phones
Mobile Complete on Monday launched an interactive Web service that lets mobile users test-drive popular phone models before buying them.
"The company's free service, dubbed TryPhone, can be accessed via a Web site, which contains virtual mobile phones that simulate the exact same features of physical phones. The devices appear on the screen larger than normal, allowing people to press buttons, run programs, and compare different devices.
Users also get an overview of the phone they're interested in, as well as reviews, technical specifications, and demos. TryPhone even offers users the option to buy a phone when they're done testing it by linking to the provider's Web site".
