SAN DIEGO -- May 29, 2002 -- Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), pioneer and world leader of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) digital wireless technology, today announced that it is closing down online registration (www.brew2002.com) for the BREW 2002 Developers Conference on Friday, May 31. BREW 2002 runs June 3-5 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel&Marina. The conference is designed to create an educational community atmosphere in which developers and industry partners can explore the complete technical and business solution enabled by Qualcomm's Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless™ (BREW) platform.
Registration for BREW 2002 has already surpassed the registration figure for last year's sold out BREW 2001 Developers Conference. Qualcomm planned for a larger conference this year to avoid turning away interested developers and other members of the wireless industry as it had to last year. However, the second annual BREW developers conference is approaching sold out status and online registration will end at close of business Friday.
Interested individuals may be able to register on site at the conference if space is still available. Onsite registration availability can be checked on the BREW 2002 registration site -www.brew2002.com.
Qualcomm's BREW platform is a thin application execution environment that provides an open, standard platform for wireless devices.

The BREW platform is a product of Qualcomm Internet Services (QIS), a division within the Qualcomm Wireless&Internet (QWI) Group of Qualcomm Incorporated.
