The number of cell phone selections can be overwhelming. A site called TryPhone is designed to make the process easier. You will be able to choose from a selection of featured phones. You then see an interactive video demo of your selection. You may select from a number of tasks and have the the site walk you through the steps. The site also allows you to select any two phones and see a comparison of features.
Going to this site is certainly no substitute for holding the phone in your hands. It may, however, be a good prerequisite to a trip to the retailer.
