Internet-oversight group ICANN recently announced the creation of .mobi, sponsored top-level domain (sTLD), aimed at mobile phones and other mobile devices. It formalized the creation by entering into a contract with mTLD Top Level Domain Ltd, the sponsoring organisaton for .mobi domains.

They jointly lobbied for ‘.mobi’ to encourage more mobile websites which are optimized for mobile phone and small display screen.
