With Remote Device Access (RDA) you can test your Java apps on a wide range of real Series 40 phones from the comfort of your office, without having to buy a single phone. Make sure you have a Nokia Developer account, then simply sign into the RDA service, pick a phone, and install your app to be testing on one of 10 different Series 40 phone models.
