With the rise of mobile devices, the usability and testing of mobile applications has gained enormous importance. However, existing tools and approaches for mobile tests are not standardized. This paper investigates the current state of testing mobile prototypes in the software industry. Based on qualitative interviews, a case study with SAP, Microsoft and Nokia HERE evaluates challenges of mobile testing, and the importance of the environment for such tests. Key findings are discussed and a decision model to find the adequate test context for a mobile prototype test is presented.
