There are of course browsers such as Opera that format .com webpages to mobile format on the fly but you still have an awful lot of scrolling to do left and right and up and down to find what you want. You can of course create a mobile version of your site by adding an M. or Mobile. or WAP. or one of the many other options out there. But how do people find you then? They have to try out all these versions of your .com site first. And how does one know if the .com site even has a mobile compliant version available at all.
The answer is of course a MOBILE COMPLIANT extension that guarantees a great mobile experience on the small screen of cellphones.. Also when you are on the move you want relevant information fast without scrolling through unnessary pages and images of info. Well there is an answer and it is slowly gaining momemtum. It's an initiative backed by big players like Microsoft, Vodaphone, Nokia, Sony-Ericson, Hutchinson-Wampoa and many more.
It made it's debut in a quiet way in 2006 and is waiting in the wings to be discovered by the public at large. Already more then a million domains have been sold and every day more are being developed and are going live. Once there are enough live sites out there the ball will start rolling properly to bring it to peoples attention.
What I am talking about is .MOBI the internet extension created especially for the mobile web. The beauty of it is that you can create pages that can be viewed equally well on a PC as well as a Cellphone. And Mtld the company behind it will be controlling the sites to make sure they are mobile compliant.
Here is their official website where you can learn more about it and see links to actual live .Mobi websites.
Here is a forum run by dedicated .Mobi domainers where you can find out about whats happening so far. The site by the way is also fully mobile compliant and try viewing it from your cellphone and from your PC to see how well it adapts to both.
