I came across a very interesting site this morning called TryPhone which gave me a live hands-on experience with mobile phones. The site states that it could be the one stop for those wanting to purchase a new phone but not having enough access to its features or for those who have already bought a phone but don’t know how to use it.
On going through the website, I noticed that the handsets are currently US specific, but it would be great if they could extend it to the global GSM handsets too.
Each handset comes with a detailed spec and consumer reviews on performance…which is a good way to judge the handset. Finally each handset also has a set of demos (how to download applications, how to send a text message etc) with a set of steps to guide you using the phone. And these demos are not just simple animations, but interactive, thus giving you the feel of using a phone in the browser.
