Qualcomm Incorporated (Nasdaq: QCOM) and AdMarvel, a leading provider of mobile advertising services, today announced that they will deliver an easy-to-use, in-application advertising solution for developers building Brew® applications distributed through Qualcomm-powered app stores on select devices.
Qualcomm and AdMarvel will work together to bring in-application advertising to market in Latin America, initially for América Móvil. This collaboration allows for its placement in native Brew and web applications (widgets), and will enable developers to deliver advertisements from major ad networks, sell ad inventory directly or cross-promote applications and services to encourage better consumer discovery. AdMarvel also will work to ensure the general availability of the solution for Brew and Brew Mobile Platform (Brew MPTM) worldwide. There are no sign-up fees and developers can download the relevant SDKs from the AdMarvel site beginning July 1, 2010.
“Qualcomm developers have always had a wide range of pricing options, and we are working with AdMarvel to ensure they continue to provide the flexibility necessary to generate revenue quickly and easily,” said Mitch Oliver, vice president of ecosystem development for Qualcomm. “Through AdMarvel, developers will be able to access major ad networks and advertisers around the globe, helping them to advance their business.”
