While RIM offers developers access to BlackBerry smartphone simulators, for some developers out there testing their apps on real devices offers a much better analysis. For this, Perfecto Mobile has launched MobileCloud for BlackBerry. A service that offers developers remote access to any number of BlackBerry 7 devices on different carriers for which they can test out BlackBerry 7 applications on.

"Real world testing can make all the difference for application developers. MobileCloud for BlackBerry will enable our application development community to quickly and easily test their apps on live BlackBerry 7 smartphones on different networks around the world from the convenience of their web browser," said Tyler Lessard, Vice President of Global Alliances & Developer Relations, Research In Motion.

The service offers you a free 2 hour testing trial period, after that -- it will cost $4 USD plus tax per hour. However, having your app work as expected when finally released is priceless compared the amount of time you'd spend on support emails and other issues that arise with having not test an app fully. If you're interested in learning more, you'll find the full press release past the break.
