Oslo, Norway -- Opera Software today announced it will deliver Opera's port for the BREW (Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless) application development platform to KDDI, Japan's second largest mobile operator.
"Opera's full Internet browser offers the greatest advantage with the high-speed and efficient data communication capabilities of the 3G CDMA
network," says Dr. Seiichiro Sakai, Director, Product Management Department, Service & Product Planning Division.
BREW is a new port for Opera. Unveiled in 2001, BREW is Qualcomm's application development platform for wireless devices that
leverages the existing and emerging features provided by Qualcomm's CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) chipsets. BREW runs in between the application and the chip operating system software, providing a uniform platform for phones from various manufacturers. BREW enables publishers, developers, operators and handset manufacturers to create and deliver new wireless data products and services with minimal resource and capital investments. According to Qualcomm, there are currently over 31 million BREW devices in the market, on 145 commercial BREW device models, backed by 33 commercial BREW operators and 27 commercial BREW device manufacturers.
