Apple Iphone – .mobi killer ?

by Adam Strong in Categories: Alternate Extensions, Miscellaneous

According to reports I’ve read scattered throughout the web (like the iphone atlas ) , the coveted new Iphone comes equipped with a “.com button”.

The keyboard is dynamic. When using Safari, for instance, there is a “.com� button.

Another source IphoneNewsBlog also reports:

– keyboard has a .com button for easy url input when in safari

Not such a good thing to hear for all these .mobi folks (or any other extension for that matter). I am going to guess that the iphone will be customizable and/or hackable for geeks to make the modifications to override this but for avg Joe internet user this means more traffic for the .com

I got the tip on this story over at domainstate

Perhaps this iphone .com story is being put out to drive down .mobi domain prices…just maybe ??

< sarcasm > Yes it’s likely a giant conspiracy by Apple to devalue .mobi and create a boom for .com
Better yet, they are going to devalue .mobi and then buy the entire registry and then re-release Iphone v2.0 with a .mobi button instead< / sarcasm > Steve Jobs is a genius. – Adam
