Poooor, pitiful title for this article. This isn't a "test drive". Not the same. Not by a lonnng shot. Kinda like saying you can "test drive" any car on the lot. Then you go to the lot and they hand you a brochure. Wacked.

I think you'd be better off going into the store and setting up a display model. I agree this not a test drive and will not resolve most users complaints about hating their phones. "Now you have no excuse for returning a new Sprint phone after you've purchased it." Really? I'm assuming the web based application wont show the phones quirks and delays, the application wont be able to address comfort while holding the phone, function / feeling while typing on the phone, etc...

I def agree this is no test drive, that's what the 30 day trial period is for, but it will help with returns. Most people return there phone cause they have no idea of how to work it or know what exactly the phone can do. So ya, bad title, they missed out on what this would actually be used for. The whole idea of putting this up for users to help them learn this device is a good idea.
