Is this service the same as the Samsung Remote test lab?
This main intention of this service is to give a feel of the working of various Samsung devices. This service is not the same as Samsung remote test lab where the developer can actually upload the developed applicaitons and can test them on the real devices. This service is like a virtual assistant that takes a walk around the various features of the application rather than testing real applications in it.
