You should also check out DeviceAnyhwere ( They have a significantly vast number of devices available to test, covering all mobile platforms. They have a good integration with HP QTP/QC. They have a HW-based approach to device integration which is much more stable, robust and reliable than other solutions out there. Worth a try.
