Mobile Games Blog has posted a story regarding Qualcomm’s BREW programming language, which has topped in $1 billion in earnings since its release in November of 2001.
The data used only includes sales through Qualcomm and a few other BREW operators, so the numbers are actually likely to be lower than the real figures because of the lack of info from off-deck sales and other sources.
“During the past five years, we are proud to have grown the BREW solution into a global premier wireless data service, and the $1 billion earned by BREW publishers and developers is a testament to the innovation they have shown in bringing valuable, relevant wireless services to market,” said Bob Briggs, senior vice president and general manager, BREW for Qualcomm Internet Services. “As QUALCOMM continues to evolve BREW, bringing our offerings and Signature Solutions to new customers and new markets, these same developers and publishers will be the lifeblood of BREW’s continued growth. We look forward to collaborating with them and continuing our mutual success.”
BREW is currently used by operators in 31 countries.
