comment Should developers be responsible for tests other than unit tests, if so which ones are the most common?
This seems to work, test team produces a use case document using the functional specification. Development team reviews use case document based on technical and functional specs and adds cases as needed. Test team develops test scenarios from use cases. Development test review test cases. Time consuming sure, but better then testing later in deployment or production phase.

further I think the more vertical the market and more specialized them more integration between the teams is needed. actually everyone should go into the testing phase with the notion that the code works under some tested conditions but is more likely flawed then not

I disagree one hundred percent, but then again lately I have been involved with mobile applications and I think they require a level of integration a little beyond what is traditional. Notice I use the term integration. there can be isolation but both teams should review and contribute to the test cases. It is unlikely the developers would have access to all required test resources to do proper testing, its also unlikely that testers would have the knowledge to develop test cases for something as advanced as streaming video over cellular networks. too much isolation = trouble.
