InfoSpace Debuts mCore

Posted on 6.10.2007
Annual mobile data revenue is forecasted to grow by $3 billion over the next five years according to Jupiter Research. Consumers say that one of the main reasons they would be more likely to use mobile data services, such as downloads, is if the user experience was better (read - more consistent).

Lo and behold, InfoSpace today formally launched its mCore(R) Mobile Services Platform, a suite of customizable mobile infrastructure services designed to "help carriers offer their subscribers a seamless, intuitive experience for finding and enjoying mobile content and information on the go". The solution spans mobile search, storefronts, portals and messaging.
