You read it right !!
For those of you who thought I misspelt TRAI (Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of India), the ubiquitous Indian governement body , you’re about to learn a thing or two from this post.
One : I have a spell-checker which i deign to use once in every few years .
Two. TryPhone is a website which lets you Try out a phone before you buy it.
No, they do not home-deliver the phones to your house so that you can try out all the features to your hearts content and then decide whether you want to buy it. But what these guys are doing is the closest thing to the physical experience.
TryPhone lets you try out the features and applications of the phones in their database in a virtual web environment.
Ok, so it still doesn’t have the touch feature. And for some of the weight-concious snobs out there, you get no idea of how “heavy” the phone is. But I still think it’s a pretty swell idea to test out a phone’s UI, apps and features.
Go give this baby a test ride here !!!
