Internet sites tailored for mobile phone browsing will adopt a new and officially approved .mobi domain suffix. The idea is that .mobi sites will make surfing the net via our handset much easier as a set of standards, such fixed screen-size resolutions, will be introduced.
MTLD, the company responsible for rolling out the new .mobi service, is hoping to launch the made-for-mobile domain towards the tail-end of 2006. Early supporters for the .mobi domain include the likes of Nokia, Microsoft, 3, T-Mobile and Vodafone. We’ll be bringing you details on the first .mobi sites as and when they surface, so watch this space.
