dotmobi Partners with Telcom Italia Mobile
Makes them the first mobile operator in the world to sell .mobi domains exclusively to customers.
dotMobi, the official registry for the .mobi domains, on February 12th, 2007, announced an exclusive partnership with Telecom Italia Mobile (TIM), making them an official worldwide registry for the dotMobi domain as well.
TIM will become the first mobile operator in the world to sell .mobi domains exclusively to customers, and to extend their mobile Internet offerings to subscribers through new TIM .mobi sites.
Later in the year, TIM will launch a new offering designed to let businesses go mobile via the development of .mobi versions of existing .com sites. The service will include a domain registration service, web site development, hosting and customer care and support. In support of this initiative, tim.mobi will showcase potential uses of .mobi sites such as e-movies, ticket booking and intranet services.
"We are delighted TIM is embracing the mobile Internet and encouraging businesses to develop mobile versions of existing web sites. The open dotMobi standards enable web developers to create content which is just as exciting and usable on a mobile as it is on a PC and we hope this encourages many businesses to adopt the mobile Internet," said Neil Edwards, CEO of dotMobi.
"The simplicity and usability of dotMobis standards enables businesses to easily extend their reach. We are delighted to be offering our customers this unique opportunity," said Gaetano Liggieri, Head of Business Innovation and Technical Solutions, TIM.
