Atari classics coming to cell phones
Motorola said Friday that it has signed a distribution agreement with iFone, a company that owns the rights to classic Atari games like "Pong," "Centipede," "Breakout" and "Asteroids." The handset maker said it intends to embed some of the games on future cell phones. Motorola also plans to sell the games to wireless carriers, which can then make them available to customers. Games are among the new services that wireless carriers hope will generate more revenue.
