[US Cellular to launch Qualcomm's Brew solution commercially on its CDMA 1XRTT data network beginning May in Tennessee.]
San Diego, Calif. -- Qualcomm, pioneer and world leader of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) technology, and U.S. Cellular announced they have signed a definitive agreement for the wireless service provider to deploy data services using Qualcomm's BREW solution. This decision follows U.S. Cellular's successful BREW trial in Knoxville, Tenn., and will enable the company to commercially launch BREW on its advanced CDMA 1XRTT data network.
Under the agreement, U.S. Cellular will deploy BREW-based data services in Tennessee in May 2003, and will launch data services across its other CDMA 1XRTT markets later this year. The BREW solution will enable customers to download wireless data applications including news, sports, weather, ring tones, e-mail and games to their wireless handsets.
"These exciting services will improve customer satisfaction by enabling subscribers to obtain information such as e-mail, location services, ring tones and games quickly and easily from their wireless phones," said Alan D. Ferber, vice president of marketing for U.S. Cellular. "We are excited to commercially launch services based on the BREW solution and are confident this new technology will improve our customer's quality of life by providing access to information, entertainment and communication in a simple, easy-to-use manner."
