Our developers have encountered some issues regarding testing their Windows Phone 8 apps either because their PCs lack the required specs to run the emulator or the lack of devices to test their apps.
I found a solution that should ease the pain and help us overcome such a challenge to an extent. Nokia promotes Remote Device Access FREE of CHARGE for all Nokia Developer members.
The Nokia Developer Remote Device Access (RDA) service is available to all Nokia Developer members (you can create an account for free). Members access the service by using their Nokia Developer logins and passwords. RDA usage is free of charge: Each user automatically receives a specific amount of device-usage time per day. The current limit is 8 hours/day.
NOTE:-> A Prerequisite that you should consider that could hinder the installation of the Remote Device Access Client on your machine is to have ‘Java for Windows’ installed on your PCs. Please download it from here.
->Here you are the Instructions for RDA usage.
