They do when you're building the phone and writing the emulator. If you
find something that doesn't work the way it ought, you fix the emulator.
Or you fix the phone.
Keep in mind that what I'm talking about is rather different from the
kind of emulator that HTML developers use to check out mobile websites.
I'm talking about an emulator that emulates the hardware, and the actual
phone software runs on it.
There's no question you have to do some final testing on the real
hardware, but doing only a thousand test runs on real hardware and doing
the other hundred thousand on the emulator makes life a lot easier.
