Wireless publishers and developers earnied more than $350 million from BREW applications and services

QUALCOMM Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), pioneer and world leader of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) digital wireless technology, announced that BREW publishers and developers have earned more than $350 million to date from the sale of wireless applications and services developed for the BREW solution.

Today's milestone is a tremendous achievement for the international community of BREW publishers and developers when compared to the more than $200 million in earnings announced in October 2004. These numbers are strong validation of the success that the solution enables and a key indicator of the popularity of wireless data worldwide. Currently, there are 45 commercial operators in 24 countries offering wireless data services based on the BREW solution.

"The widespread success of BREW publishers and developers demonstrates the BREW solution's superb ability to support companies of all sizes in realizing their full revenue potential," said Peggy Johnson, president of QUALCOMM Internet Services. "By providing the tools and resources necessary for the development and delivery of wireless content, publishers and developers can concentrate on what they do best - creating compelling, fun and useful applications, which translates directly into revenue gains for the mobile marketplace value chain."

Earnings figures were calculated based on payments made by QUALCOMM to developers and on reports from certain BREW operators on what they had paid to their publishers and developers. 9 Squared, AG Interactive, SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT and Sorrent will be showcasing their portfolio of wireless offerings during the BREW 2005 Conference, taking place June 1-3 in San Diego.

QUALCOMM's BREW solution is designed to meet the distinct and varied needs of wireless operators, handset manufacturers, publishers, developers and end users around the world.
