Cannes, France -- QUALCOMM Incorporated and Openwave Systems Inc. announced a licensing agreement that will further promote the rapid advancement of 3G WCDMA (UMTS) handsets. Under this agreement, QUALCOMM and Openwave will work together to port Openwave mobile browser and messaging software to select QUALCOMM Mobile Station Modem(tm) (MSM) chipsets, enabling a phone solution that builds on the capabilities of QUALCOMM's Launchpad(tm) suite. Openwave's software will be integrated directly on top of QUALCOMM's BREW(R) solution to shorten design timelines and costs while providing an enhanced end-user experience across key applications. This solution will be available starting with QUALCOMM's MSM6250(tm) chipset solution to initially target WCDMA markets.
QUALCOMM will offer select components of Openwave Phone Suite Version 7 (V7), including Openwave Mobile Browser, with operator specific service extensions, along with Openwave SMS, EMS, MMS, PoC and IM clients. QUALCOMM has also commissioned Openwave to develop BREW extensions, providing ease of development and design re-use across multiple handsets. Openwave clients will build on the Launchpad engines to deliver applications that provide operators with the flexibility to design customized user experience specifications - providing end users with an easy-to-use format that encourages increased usage of wireless multimedia.
The MSM6250 chipset supports QUALCOMM's Launchpad suite of advanced multimedia, connectivity, position location, user interface and removable storage functionality, including QUALCOMM's gpsOne(tm) solution, the world's most broadly deployed assisted-GPS handset technology.
QUALCOMM's chipsets also support QUALCOMM's BREW ecosystem, which enables the development and monetization of advanced applications and content, allowing operators and OEMs to differentiate their products and services and increase revenues. QUALCOMM's chipsets are also compatible with the Java(tm) runtime environment; J2ME(tm) can be built entirely on the chipset as an extension to the BREW solution.
