  • Wikipedia The domain name  mobi  is a  top-level domain  (TLD) in the  Domain Name System  of the  Internet . Its name is derived from  mobile , indicating its use by  mobile devices  for accessing Internet resources via the  Mobile Web . The domain was approved by  ICANN  on 11 July 2005, and is managed by the  mTLD global registry . It was originally financially backed and sponsored by  Google ,  Microsoft ,  Nokia ,  Samsung ,  Ericsson ,  Vodafone ,  T-Mobile ,  Telefónica Móviles ,  Telecom Italia Mobile ,  Orascom Telecom , GSM Association  ,  Hutchison Whampoa ,  Syniverse Technologies , and  Visa
  • Wikipedia Opera Mobile  is a  web browser  for  smartphones  and  personal digital assistants  (PDAs) developed by the  Opera Software  company. Opera Mobile is available for a variety of devices that run  Windows Mobile , or  S60  and  UIQ  user interfaces of the  Symbian   operating system . which can tailor any website to small display (using  Small Screen Rendering  technique). However, these browsers must still download an entire page (with graphics and other related files) which, if not optimized for mobile phones, can be time-consuming and expensive to download.
  • Wikipedia that download the optimized and compressed version of web pages through dedicated proxy servers. However, web pages viewed on a mobile via a proxy-based microbrowser are rarely specifically designed for a mobile phone, so it is left up to the proxy server and browser to decide what to compress, what to display, and how to display it, which, unlike the .mobi version of the site, may not necessarily be how the web page owner intends for the mobile audience.
  • Need to define the target audience: Are you customers/audience in Europe? Then you might want to look into which devices have a higher market share in Europe (Nokia, Sony Ericsson). US/Canada? Then iPhone is definitely worth it. Are your customers business people, well then you might want to look at Blackberry apps. ( Rune Madsen General Manager at Lakeshore Distribution Inc),0
  • Geolocation  is the identification of the real-world geographic location of an Internet-connected computer, mobile device, website visitor or other. IP address geolocation data can include information such as country, region, city, postal/zip code, latitude, longitude and timezone. [1]   Geolocation  may refer to the practice of assessing the location, or to the actual assessed location, or to locational data.
  • Although not for mobile, it reflects the current trend. Cloudomatic is the easiest way for businesses and individuals to discover Software as a Service (SaaS) applications. Always comparing to the easy use apple app store.
  • To emulate apps for iphone and palm, mobione is a mobile visual designer, multi-touch and gesture support for Web apps and hybrid apps, iPhone 3.0, HTML5 geolocation, local storage and application caching by use of HTML5, JavaScript and CSS3 which allow you to distribute your app without an application store (like the iPhone App Store, for example). To emulate a web site on a mobile, emulators like the one in dotMobi allow to insert the url and see what is expected to happen.
