InfoSpace’s Mobile Plans

Not that they need repeating to any of our regular readers, but Seattle Times has a long story about InfoSpace continued transition into a mobile pureplay, though online still remains an important part. Most of the details we’ve written about here…but couple of interesting points:
— INSP claims to have 60 percent of the portal, or wireless storefront business, and to have assisted more than 150 million content downloads in 2005 for an estimated 45 percent market share.
— CEO Jim Voelker has committed to being a dominant player in the business and has pledged to spend up to $7 million a quarter on mobile initiatives. The company also expects to add 100 jobs to its work force of 620.
