Simulate Popular Mobile Devices for Testing

You can download emulators for popular mobile devices and browsers by following these links

Device or Browser Emulator / Simulator
Windows Phone 7 Windows Phone Developer Tools RTW

This includes Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone. It also integrates with Visual Studio 2010 if you already have it installed.

Windows Mobile 6.5.3 Windows Mobile 6.5.3 Developer Tool Kit

Note that to give the phone network access, you also need the VPC Network Adaptor included in Virtual PC 2007 . To connect IE on the phone to your Visual Studio development server, see Kiran Patil’s blog post .

Opera Mobile / Opera Mini Latest versions: Opera Developer Tools home

Opera Mini 4.2: Online Java-based simulator

iPhone / iPod / iPad iBBDemo2 iPad / iPhone Simulator

There’s no true iOS emulator for Windows. iBBDemo2 is an unofficial 3rd-party utility that simulates Mobile Safari’s screen dimensions and user agent string.

Mozilla Fennec Firefox for Mobile homepage

Follow the link under the heading Download Firefox for mobile to your desktop computer.

Note that if you want to view your application on a real mobile device (which is the only option for fully testing iPhone or iPad, since there’s no true emulator for Windows) you’ll need to host your application in IIS or IIS Express. You can’t easily use Visual Studio’s built-in web server for this, because it won’t respond to requests from other machines.
