If you are trying to do server performance testing (server response to lots of simulated traffic), then you want a tool more like OpenSTA. It can record any HTTP/HTTPS traffic and replay it (times) as many users as you like using multiple distributed client simulators. SilkTest would not be a good choice for this in my opinion.
For testing the mobile device itself, SilkTest is again not a good choice. It sounds like you would be doing embedded testing, which will probably require the same tools that the developers use to develop the embedded code in the first place.

It can be done but it's not easy. I use Textract with SilkTest and it does the job. We wrote our own wrapper around the Textract dll and then added it to SilkTest. Tectract is an OCR application that will scrape the text off a render screen. Good Luck, Larry
