Forum Nokia provide a Remote Device Access service for its users. This allows people to connect to and control devices that may be thousands of miles away from them, through the internet. RDA can be used by developers who want to test their applications on different models, ordinary consumers who just want to get a feel of the latest device's software and of course many other things.
To get started with RDA, you will need to have a forum Nokia account, you can sign up here. Once you're registered, head over to the RDA page over here and click on 'start rda' which will take you to another page where you can make reservations for the times at which you'd like to use a device.
To make a reservation, just click on the reservations tab, find the device you want to use and click on an empty slot in the chart which will take you to a new reservations page. Reservations can last from 30 minutes to 3 hours, which should be plenty
Once your reservation has begun, you can hit the 'start RDA' button, this will initiate the download of a small java app which when opened will show you the available devices with your reserved device marked with a green tick:
double click on it and you'll be presented with a screen like this:
From here you can navigate through the device, install applications etc.
Things to note:
RDA works on a credits system, for a half hour reservation, 2 of your credits will be deducted. I believe that each user gets 40 credits per day, but I'm not 100% certain on that figure.
