InfoSpace exploring content business

Bellevue-based InfoSpace is looking into becoming a provider of original content, according to CEO Jim Voelker’s interview with paidContent. Voelker said that not only will it help content companies “get mobilized,” it will begin seeking out original games and animations.

We will continue to be a programmer and licensor of content and help companies get mobilized. There are opportunities for us in mobile games, for example, where we can raise our profile and titles. Last year, we secured all the technical capabilities. That’s probably why Electronic Arts paid such a huge premium for Jamdat [a provider of entertainment applications and technologies that support multiple wireless handset platforms].

We are looking for original titles in games and animation, and we’re counting on Stephen Davis [the new head of mobile] to drive this.
