This article talks about interactive testing of handsets. Analysts say that testing handsets to ensure they are compatible with a wireless network is becoming a critical part of strategies of carriers, but carriers argue that there is no substitute for actual human technicians in the field. Lou LaMedica of Verizon claimed that interactive testing makes it easier for handset makers to find the bugs in their products, but it will never replace having a technician use a device on the network.
