Qualcomm to slow down its Brew mobile OS According to Qualcomm's President of Internet Services, the company plans to slow down on its BREW mobile OS, seen on feature phones for 10 years now.
Says Rob Chandhok (via Om):

[It's] not really the thing that’s in the spotlight for us anymore….we shouldn’t be too surprised: it’s been around for 10 years, there aren’t too many operating systems that have been around with only a couple of revisions in 10 years in the market….the pace might be a little bit slower than it was before, just because the market has changed.


The company will continue to develop the Brew OS, but at a slower pace and only for low-end devices (feature phones).

Eventually, the operating system will be completely killed off, especially as the world transitions to smartphones.

KILL IT NOW!!! It isn't even good for a basic phone-only device, let alone a feature phone.
