Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM), a leading developer and innovator of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) and other advanced wireless technologies, today announced its uiOneTM Software Development Kit (SDK) 1.2 version for developers, content providers and graphic designers interested in creating custom user interfaces (UIs) for mobile devices. The uiOne solution provides the wireless value chain with the means to advance the wireless experience via rich, integrated and dynamic user interfaces that can be updated over the air. The uiOne SDK provides the tools needed to create, simulate and run custom UIs on BREW devices, as well as the ability to test applications on PCs during the development process. This is the first time that the uiOne SDK will be made commercially available, marking an important advancement in the development of mobile device UIs, ultimately providing an enriched wireless experience for end users.
“As the wireless data market continues to progress, customization features are becoming more and more important to operators seeking to offer the most advanced and compelling services, suited to the particular tastes of their customers,” said Mitch Oliver, vice president of solutions and marketing for Qualcomm Internet Services. “The availability of the uiOne SDK for mobile publishers and developers, as well as the creative community of graphic designers is the ideal next step in the progression of custom UIs. We expect the release of uiOne SDK version 1.2 to be a catalyst for the innovation and to greatly raise the level of demand for custom UIs.”
Included within the uiOne SDK are source samples that show the wide variety of options that can be achieved when developing for the uiOne solution. Developers can use the source samples as starting points to develop their own UIs. The uiOne SDK version 1.2 will be available initially for authenticated BREW developers to download from the BREW Extranet.
The BREW solution drives the discovery and delivery of data services. BREW subscribers can benefit from several offerings which include: uiOne for rich, integrated and dynamic user experiences with fast access to high revenue services on wireless devices; deliveryOneTM for differentiated and tightly integrated, operator-managed support and delivery of advanced wireless data content and services; and marketOneTM for a quick-to-market, hosted, scalable content delivery service that includes media titles, flexible management and monetization, content provider settlement and business intelligence services. Qualcomm offers this comprehensive set of BREW offerings to meet the distinct needs of companies delivering mobile products and services around the world.
