Afilias just announced that they are accepting proposals for single and double character .INFO domains. Applications have to be submitted with non-refundable $1,000 fee and have to be received before 12:00 UTC on 30 April 2011. The registry operator reserves the right, to reject proposals that are received after the submission deadline or are deficient or incomplete.
The proposal form and additional details can be found on the Afilias Website.
Afilias had used a similar process for the allocation of unassigned .INFO sunrise domains, however never published the final results of the process. DNN knows of at least two applications that received a rejection from that allocation phase without receiving what the applications consider a proper explanation.
[Update] Afilias has removed the description of the re-allocation process for unassigned .INFO sunrise domains from their site along with the list of domains. DNN archived the information.
