QUALCOMM Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless (BREW) is a development platform that allows software developers to create applications that operate on all handsets that utilize the QUALCOMM CDMA chipsets.

  Software Development for the QUALCOMM BREW Platform will begin with an introduction to BREW and how it differs from its competitors (J2ME, Palm OS, Symbian, and Pocket PC Phone Edition). After this orientation you'll learn about what it takes to develop applications for BREW -- not just development tools, but the methodology required to bring an application to a carrier for distribution.

  BREW offers a number of key advantages over other software environments for today's handsets to both carriers and software developers: secure application licensing, integrated billing for application purchases, and down-to-the-metal APIs for high-performance applications including multimedia and gaming applications.

  With over a million BREW-enabled handsets having shipped in the first year of BREW's availability and successful deployment with both a major domestic carrier (Verizon Wireless, who has over thirty seven million subscribers) and overseas carriers (Telesp and KTF, with other carriers presently running trials with BREW), BREW is poised to become an important player in the wireless handset space.
