The TouchTest Private Device Cloud comes preconfigured with 10 dedicated devices of your choosing at a price of $130,000 per year.

“Enterprise mobile development and escalating business demand for mobile apps have driven the need to utilize real mobile devices as part of a comprehensive testing strategy, but managing those devices is cumbersome,” said Melinda Ballou, program director for IDC's Application Lifecycle Management and Executive Strategies service. “The ability to run test automation on real devices in a private, hybrid and/or public cloud, can offer test and development teams more reliable and effective approaches to faster testing and broader coverage.”
