If you've used a standard cell phone in the past few years, especially for Verizon, then chances are the operating system was based on Qualcomm's Brew format. Now Qualcomm is hoping to improve upon it, with the announcement of their new Brew Mobile Platform
open operating system. The Brew MP is a full mobile OS, that delivers features across a wide variety of 3G devices, including low cost smartphones and other data intensive phones, such as AT&T's quick messaging devices. Look for devices from AT&T this year featuring the Brew MP operating system.
