With the renaming, the company also said that it is focusing on three product lines: Hands-On Games, Hands-On Lifestyle and Hands-On Personalization.
"In the coming weeks, we expect to roll out a diverse and compelling array of products that will meet the needs of our customers, enabling them to customize their mobile-entertainment content to best reflect their own hobbies, beliefs and passions," Sacks said.
