ICANN approves a domain for mobile handsets

NVIDIA 7800GT: pricing and sales date

ICANN approves a domain for mobile handsets

The current efforts to adapt web pages for mobile handsets have been of rather humble success until now, but developers continue their work anyway. Under the pressure of large companies specializing in various fields of mobile technologies, Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved a new WWW domain dedicated to wireless phones — ".mobi". It is called to further expand feature set of mobile handsets and increase their market potential, project organizers (e.g. Microsoft) say.

Since cellular operators underline high bandwidth as a distinctive feature of 3G networks, and mobile phone vendors add more and more functions to newer products, all of them hope the new domain will attract buyers to the idea of upgrading their cellular phones.

The first websites dot mobi are expected in 2006. They will be specially developed considering the limited nature of mobile devices such as small screens and resources. But it will take a few years more to promote the domain to masses, analysts say.

Within the first 90 days, the registration priority will be given to companies developing websites for their respective mobile brands.

NVIDIA 7800GT: pricing and sales date

After the announcement of the 7800GTX GPU, many were wondering if NVIDIA was going to release mid/low-end GPUs as well. While NVIDIA keeps information about 7800GT to itself, the Web hosts a lot of rumours and guesses. According to some unofficial information, 7800GT is to be announced in August at Quakecon 2005.

Pity, there are no 7800GT specifications yet, however the MSRP is said to be $449. And the company might take another week after the announcement before launching actual sales.

As for ATI, it should hurry to unveil the R520, a competitor to 7800GT. And it would be better if it´s available right after the introduction, otherwise its marketing might slow down.
