BREW vs. Java

... Java is the software platform and brew is the wap platform, almost every cdma phone with wap has brew.

That's simply not true. BREW is an application and game platform just like Java. BREW can also handle ringtones, graphics and more, and Verizon makes use of that. On Sprint phones, that sort of thing is simply handled via WAP.

Like most CDMA phones, this model will have Java - and not BREW - on the Sprint version. Vice-versa on the Verizon version.
