Today Qualcomm and Adobe announced that the BREW Mobile Platform will be integrated with Adobe Flash technology and new platform features. You can read the full press release here. This is fantastic news for both BREW and Flash developers particularly in the large BREW market in the US.
In Europe specifically BREW is available on UIOne based handsets, notably the Skype phone on the 3 network in the UK. So the platform is largely based in the US and Asia though the use of Flash technology on millions of new devices can only strengthen the adoption across platforms and screens.
For developers this means that there are opportunities to leverage this as a data point when dealing with your customers, and to reach into the US market in the future. Naturally there will be aggregators and other friendly developers that can help you to deliver content to BREW.
What a challenge, “iPhone has raised the bar, now lets see what the Flash community see what they can do,” said Andrew Gilbert from Qualcomm.”
