By targeting devices running on our chipsets and leveraging the software and hardware development tools we provide, you can write apps – for Android™, Brew®, Windows® 8, Windows Phone, and the other mobile OSes – that will set you apart from the competition.

Mobile Platforms

Qualcomm supports nearly every high-level mobile OS in the market and we've been leaders with the first deployments of both Android and Windows Phone devices.

Use our tools and resources to optimize your app's performance. The majority of Android devices in the market are powered by our chipsets, allowing you to deliver a high-quality experience to a wide customer base.

With an addressable market of more than 250 million handsets and more than 50 million monthly consumer transactions, the commercial opportunity with the Brew platform has never been better. Brew opens up significant revenue opportunities for you by successfully bringing smartphone-like capabilities to feature phones.

HTML5 is an important mobile app platform choice for developers to deliver apps that are available anywhere and on any device with a browser. Qualcomm is working to narrow the gap between HTML5 and native capabilities to bring substantial benefit in simplicity, cost, flexibility, and features to achieve optimum results in app performance.

Qualcomm knows mobile. Qualcomm knows ARM. And Microsoft chose Snapdragon for its Windows Phone 7 launch smartphones. Only makes sense. Now that Windows is going fully mobile with Windows RT, Qualcomm is the chipset provider with the expertise to allow developers to optimize their apps on ARM.

Developing for Windows Phone allows you to deliver an exceptional experience to your end users. We're working closely with Microsoft to enabled Windows Phone users to benefit from new features and an unmatched level of integration and collaboration between hardware, software and services.
