Nokia, Ericsson gonna slap you upside the head

Fear, uncertainty, and doubt being spread by Iron Mountain to get webheads to enroll in their seminar:

In May 2006 the new global .MOBI top-level domain extension is expected to arrive. It’s not the usual "yada-yada" new domain extension. It’s backed by major players in the mobile world, like Ericsson, GSM Association, Hutchison, Microsoft, Nokia, Samsung Electronics, Syniverse Technologies, Telefonica Moviles, TIM, T-Mobile and Vodafone. These investors are serious about bringing a much better and consistent mobile browsing experience to all users no matter what device they may be using. They plan on enforcing certain web site formatting requirements. Failure to comply may mean you are shut out reaching mobile users, even if you meet all legal requirements for registering a .MOBI domain name.
