Open source and community-driven software development is becoming increasingly important to the wireless industry. As connected consumer products ranging from traditional handsets and sophisticated Smartphones to mobile computing devices grow in functionality, open software is helping spur the creativity and innovation that will allow these devices to provide more advanced services -- and thus greater value than ever before. In recognition of this market dynamic, Qualcomm Inc. formed the Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc.
Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm that brings together a dedicated group of engineers focused on this area of growing innovation. With the goal of investing greater resources into enabling and optimizing open source software with Qualcomm technology, Qualcomm Innovation Center, Inc. works closely with the open source community to enable the faster advancement of the wireless industry as a whole.
