China Unicom Ltd and QUALCOMM Inc. have signed a definitive agreement under which China Unicom will commercially launch, over its CDMA network, a new wireless application service based on QUALCOMM's Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless (BREW) solution by the end of 2002.

With this agreement, China Unicom's wireless customers will be able to personalize their mobile phones by downloading the applications they want, using the BREW platform. Separately, the two companies have also made plans to establish a joint venture in China to foster a domestic BREW developer community and manage the BREW applications produced by this development community.

QUALCOMM's BREW platform is a thin application execution environment that provides an open, standard platform for wireless devices. Further, this platform is part of a complete, end-to-end solution for wireless applications development, device configuration, application distribution, and billing and payment.
