Guides – a web developer’s handbook designed to ensure the best possible internet experience for the mobile user. This consultative edition of the dotmobi Switch On!

The dotmobi domain, set for commercial launch this summer, will revolutionise the relationship between the internet and mobile devices by the clear identification of made-for-mobile internet sites and applications. Neil Edwards, General Manager of mTLD Ltd, said: “Many existing internet protocols and practices are grounded in desktop PC-oriented services and were not designed with a mobile device in mind, which has led to a less than optimal performance for the end user. The dotmobi guides are designed to preserve the best possible user experience while retaining the open standards-based approach of the internet. Many years of research from world class companies have gone into producing the dotmobi Switch On! Web Browsing Guide.”
