Qualcomm's Brew Mobile Platform Continues to Bring New Partners to the Qualcomm-Driven 3Pre Program

Qualcomm, a dealer in next-generation mobile technologies, has claimed that their Brew Mobile Platform (Brew MP) is continuing to bring new partners to the Qualcomm (News - Alert)-driven 3Pre program.
The 3Pre program provides support to mobile device manufacturers, operators and members of the developer community with a focus on integrating core, pre-loaded applications. Qualcomm has claimed that they created the 3Pre program (pre-integrated, pre-optimized, pre-distributed) for core Brew MP applications because they realize that third parties play a critical role in accelerating wireless technology advancements.
Vice President of Ecosystem Development for Qualcomm, Mitch Oliver has stated that Qualcomm is committed to advancing the reach of Brew MP, a robust, integrated and highly scalable mobile OS with global reach that brings richer applications and experiences to the world's largest markets at present and for the future. 
The 3Pre program is a unique and new element Qualcomm has added to the Brew MP offering. The 3Pre program brings in players from across the ecosystem-manufacturers, operators and members of the developer community-with a focus on core, pre-loaded applications. Qualcomm offers special support to the developers of these chosen applications that help speed time-to-market and maximize the potential of Brew MP. 
Some of the companies that are working with the Brew MP team include: Comviva Technologies Limited, Infraware, iSkoot (News - Alert), Novarra Inc., Obigo, Opera Software and lots more. New developers now joining the 3Pre program include: ACCESS, Bluestreak Technology, Cequint, Funambol, Jibe Mobile, PixSense and UIEvolution (News - Alert). The list is constantly expanding as Brew MP releases continue and handsets projects continue.
Brew MP is claimed to have been built from a technology that has powered over 1200 device models and hundreds of millions of handsets in the field today. It delivers smartphone functionality virtually across all tiers of devices including the emerging tier of mass-market smartphones. The operating system enables advanced capabilities such as touchscreen, rich multimedia, window management, open platform extensibility and expanded support for native application development.
Recently, Qualcomm and CK Telecom signed license agreement and Qualcomm joined with SEMATECH (News - Alert) to advance CMOS scaling technology.
