LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Qualcomm Incorporated
(NASDAQ: QCOM) through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies,
Inc., today announced an Internet of Everything (IoE) development platform,
which is based on Qualcomm Technologies' QSC6270-Turbo chipset and supports
Oracle's Java ME Embedded 3.2. This platform, which utilizes Qualcomm
Technologies' industry leading Gobi^™ modem solution for 3G, enables
developers to accelerate development efficiency and decrease time-to-market
for a wide range of applications and devices to connect to the AT&T mobile
internet. AT&T and Qualcomm Technologies expect this IoE development platform
to be available to developers in the second quarter of 2013.

This IoE development platform provides an ideal starting point for creating a
range of cellular-connected products and applications for IoE verticals such
as tracking, industrial controls and health care. With this platform being
capable of supporting Oracle's Java ME Embedded 3.2 software release,
developers with little mobile development experience can quickly go from
concept to writing and executing Java applications directly on the
QSC6270-Turbo chipset. In North America, this IoE development platform will be
supported by AT&T, allowing developers to test their solutions and demonstrate
functionality on a live network in the design and development phases, which
can reduce complexity, cost and time for developers as they drive to get their
solutions to market. With access to the various hardware interfaces and
capabilities of the 3G modem via the application environment hosted on the
QSC6270-Turbo chipset, developers can also customize and optimize end-product
PCBs without the need for additional discreet processors or microcontrollers
thus cost-effectively integrating cellular capabilities into a wider range of
devices and solutions.

This IoE development platform includes several onboard sensors and indicators,
including an accelerometer, light sensor and temperature sensor. The Java ME
3.2 software release, which can run on this platform, includes several new
JSRs for IoE applications, as well as Device Access and AT Command Pass
Through APIs that give developers access to a large number of chipset IOs and
interfaces, such as GPIO, I^2C and SPI. This platform also features support
for cellular coverage for tri-band UMTS/HSDPA – 2100/1900/850 MHz – and
quad-band GSM – 850/900/1800/1900 MHz – support, standalone GPS, as well as
2.4GHz Wi-Fi a/b/g/n via a Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. AR6103 module.

"This IoE development platform opens a world of opportunity for equipment
makers who want to connect their devices to the mobile internet," said Chris
Penrose, senior vice president, emerging devices, AT&T. "Wireless connectivity
makes products better, and this IoE development platform makes it easier for
both existing and new AT&T developers to embed wireless into their products."

"Qualcomm Technologies sees the Internet of Everything as having significant
potential.In addition to large IoE verticals like automotive and energy that
have established industry players, application developers are key to creating
future IoE verticals and applications that haven't even been thought of yet,"
says Kanwalinder Singh, senior vice president of business development,
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. "This IoE development platform with Java support
is a tool to extend the power of our integrated chipsets to application
developers.We are excited that AT&T shares our vision of a cellular-connected
IoE, and by the opportunities that will be created by the AT&T developer
community."
