Touchscreen Usability Testing of Mobile Devices

In 2009, the Wireless RERC conducted usability testing on three popular models of touchscreen smartphones,  Apple's iPhone 3G, BlackBerry's Storm 9530, and HTC's Touch HD.  13 participants with a variety of disabilities across functional and sensory limitations tested the cognitive, manual, and visual interfaces of the devices.  Please consult the presentation below for full results of the study.
