这次微软并没有以OS提供商的身份进入Brew平台, 而是以游戏开发商的身份和Qualcomm签署协议, 将在Brew平台上面部署游戏应用. 对于两者而言, 都是不错的决定.
Microsoft has adopted yet another platform under its broad strategy to provide games and game communities wherever users go.
Under an agreement announced Thursday at the Brew 2006 Conference, Qualcomm will build extensions for Microsoft’s Live Anywhere technology into its own Brew mobile software development and delivery platform. The extensions will allow Live Anywhere to be provided as an application on Brew phones.
Microsoft’s Live Anywhere vision, laid out by Chairman and Chief Software Architect Bill Gates last month at the E3 gaming conference, calls for consumers to be able to use a common user interface on Windows Vista PCs and Windows Mobile devices as well as the Xbox 360 console.
