Webraska ported its leading navigation applications, including turn-by-turn directions and traffic applications onto Qualcomm's Binary Runtime Environment for Wireless(TM) (BREW(TM)) application platform.

QUALCOMM Incorporated (Nasdaq:QCOM), pioneer and world leader of Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) digital wireless technology, and Webraska, the worldwide provider of wireless navigation services and technologies, have signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) where Webraska will be developing wireless applications for BREW(TM).

"BREW(TM) provides a very powerful environment for wireless applications," said Charles Nahas, Webraska's General Manager for North America "It will allow us to provide advanced and powerful applications and services to wireless users and address very efficiently the navigation and mapping market."
