Photos: Nokia's San Diego Test Center
And, because Nokia has, those actions shouldn’t damage your device. At least that’s the hope behind Nokia’s six mobile device test centers, including one in San Diego, which the handset maker opened up to journalists attending CTIA .
LR Mobile took a tour of the facility and can vouch for the fact that every phone Nokia has produced goes through a series of tests where Nokia engineers do everything in their power to destroy the phone. The wireless operators give the company “stress level” guidelines that each phone they buy must pass to be sold to end consumers, according to Nokia's president of North America, Chris Weber.
In case you are wondering, there were no Windows Phone devices to be found at the facility, but Weber said the same tests would be applied to them. And, he’s “chomping at the bit” to divulge more about the handsets ... but he can’t yet.
