Sony to Use Qualcomm Technology in Games

June 06, 2002|Reuters

The Internet entertainment arm of Sony Corp., best known for games including "Jeopardy Online," will develop games for cell phones based on software created by wireless company Qualcomm Inc.

Sony Online Entertainment said it will use the Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless, better known as BREW, a platform developed by Qualcomm for phones running on the high-speed versions of its Code Division Multiple Access, or CDMA, wireless networks.

BREW is one of two platforms being widely used for applications such as gaming on cell phones; the other is a mobile version of Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Java platform called J2ME.
