    Is Qualcomm’s Brew (OS) dead? — Tech News and Analysis

    The falling fortunes of Symbian, the chaos as WebOS withers, and hiccups at BlackBerry are pretty visible signs of the upheavals in the mobile operating systems. The change is obviously because of the rise of Internet and touch-centric operating environments such as Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. The latest OS to fall victim to this shift is Qualcomm’s Brew OS

    Brew has always been a dumbphone OS. It's not really going away, it's just that everyone wants smartphones now. But for those that don't, Brew will be there.

    BTW yet another example of a misleading, overhyped headline.

    Brew: "The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated."
    Touchscreens are a fad.

    Yup, it is still very much alive. If it's not a smartphone, it probably runs Brew. And as astonishing as it may sound, there are still more people that use feature phones instead of smartphones.
