Macromedia Will Put Flash On BREW

Qualcomm and Macromedia entered into an agreement today to create a Flash player for the BREW platform. Qualcomm will allow Macromedia to integrate elements of the Flash Framework and APIs into the BREW platform. Macromedia will then build a Flash player, as well as assisting Flash developers to build FlashCast client applications for the platform. FlashCast is a push client for mobile content, similar to Motorola's Screen3 technology, only more flexible and graphically rich. Although this is not a marriage of BREW and Flash, it is indications that carriers which use BREW are also interested in using Flash and FlashCast to deliver rich content to their subscribers, and could open the door for tighter integration between the two platforms in the future.
