Infospace, Inc. today demonstrated its intentions in the mobile games sector by launching the Infospace Games product line, which publishes, powers and develops a unified portfolio of games from the recently acquired Atlas Mobile, IOMO and elkware catalogues. By capitalising on its core business strengths and leveraging its new gaming assets, Infospace has established itself as a key player in this burgeoning industry.
