Windows Phone 7 gets sent to the rack Video Transcript
-I'm Ina Fried with CNET. I'm here with [unk] in one of the testing labs for Microsoft Windows Phone. What are we seeing here? It's a bunch of phones. -So, basically, what you have here is what we call a pioneer rack. Each of the trays is carrying 16 devices, 16 of our Samsungs which we released from public review. So, from this 16, there's 8 that are hooked up to those set up that we were showing you earlier, right. The USB-- sorry, the dark starboard and the starboard -And what can you test using that? -So if you just-- I don't know if you're zooming in, but as you can see, so we've actually got a stress run going on these devices. It's all automated. It's going through a bunch-- It's performing a bunch of actions here. It's essentially just a stress run for these devices. -What did we test--- I mean, any automation run? We [unk] over the wire and make sure that they-- I can see the server here. and that server basically [unk] one of the phone [unk] -So, if you look at the back of the device again, I'm gonna try not to interrupt the run. But if you look at the back of the device again, you're looking at a battery mod. This is what I was showing you earlier on the other lab-- -So, in here, what you've done is take out the real battery and you can simulate either battery power-- -It's a battery mod. Yes, we've replaced a real battery with a battery mod. So again, you've got 2 mods here. You're looking at, you know, external power and also the battery mode itself. So if I just toggle the switch which it is toggled right now, it sucks the external power, right? which means I'm getting all the power supply from this power supply right here, from this external power supply. But if I still toggle it back to battery power then you have the real battery, right.
