dotMobi to Launch Mobile Site Building Tool

dotMobi, company behind the first and only Internet address designed specifically for mobile phones, today announced a partnership with Akmin Technologies (http://akmin.mobi) to publish the .mobi Site Builder, a tool to be made available exclusively to .mobi registrars around the world.

A part of dotMobi's Go Mobile! global program, the .mobi Site Builder will help consumers and small businesses develop simple, yet effective, mobile web sites. The tool, based on Akmin's mobiSiteGalore application (viewable at www.mobisitegalore.com), will include high-end features that allow advanced users to build customized sites. Most importantly, sites created with the tool will be instantly compliant with dotMobi's open standards, based on the work of the W3C's Mobile Web Initiative. Compliance with these standards enables these sites to work on all internet-capable mobile phones.

Prashanth, CEO of Akmin says, "Our vision is to jump-start the mobile content revolution by empowering even ordinary users with a powerful, do-it-yourself mobile web site builder that will allow them to quickly build complete mobile web sites that are compliant with dotMobi's open standards. We are extremely happy that dotMobi has chosen Akmin's mobiSiteGalore to power their .mobi Site Builder. Without dotMobi's pioneering mobile web initiatives, we could not have developed this tool."

Neil Edwards, CEO, dotMobi, said "Expanding the availability of Akmin's .mobi-compliant mobile Web site design tool to all of our registrars ensures that everyone who buys a .mobi domain will be able to build a compliant site in minutes. That means an explosion in mobile Internet sites is coming very quickly."

After the initial release in English, the tool will soon be available in most European languages and Chinese as well to handle the specialized demands of these languages. The tool can also be private-labeled by registrars.

The dotMobi Go Mobile! program is exclusively available to dotMobi's registrars and resellers, and includes a range of tools for developing good quality mobile content, like the upcoming .mobi Site Builder, as well as targeted marketing guides to dramatically improve companies' mobile capabilities and business volumes.
