Our company hopes to roll out support for mobile devices this year. We plan to go with a pure-browser solution. I am working on a strategy for testing our web application's mobile support. We will, of course, test with actual mobile devices. In addition to that, we may also test with the Android emulator.
One of our developers has read that the Android emulator is not worth the trouble because bugs found on the emulator cannot necessarily be reproduced on real devices.
Does anyone here have experience, either as a developer or as a tester, with testing web applications using the Android emulator? If so, are bugs found on the emulator more likely than not to be legitimate bugs that can be reproduced on actual devices?
(There are alternative browsers you can download for Android, but I am interested specifically in experiences with the Android emulator's "native" browser.)
