Qualcomm Inc. announced last week the development of an application platform for wireless devices, which the company said is a better alternative to Java for mobile telephones. Dubbed Brew, or binary run-time environment for wireless, the new system will be offered by Qualcomm initially to cellular carriers using its CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) technology, although the company is also in talks with GSM (Global System for Mobile communications) operators. "We think that it will ignite a revolution in applications development and dramatically increase the pace of handset innovation," said Paul E. Jacobs, executive vice president of Qualcomm, at a Tokyo news conference. Chief among the selling points of the system for developers is its support for the C and C++ programming languages.
