Page 1 of 1
Unlike today's Web-only portal sites, Planetweb's platform portal is intended to offer fully customized features and services designed for consumer devices ranging from set-top boxes to video game systems.
The agreement with Excite allows Planetweb to incorporate search and navigation capability to its operating software. In addition, Planetweb will enrich the current information resources provided by InfoSpace.com to include categories such as news, weather and local information.
The company plans to fully launch the new portal in the first quarter of next year.
