Just saw this reported at DomainNameNews.com, as part of a report on recent Sedo sales...

http://www.domainnamenews.com/domain-sales/sedo-sells-callcom-11-million-reports-2-million-weekly-sales/5905

(On a "related note," it also reports that MobilityScooters.org sold for $1,500...) :laugh:

Great news!

The buyer is a German.
mfg is used as the short form of "Mit freundlichen Grüßen" = With kind regards.

great to see being used as a redirect already
lets hope they build out as a stand alone
at very least i would imagine they will promote mobi in a small way as otherwise pointless shelling cash out
lets hope lots of german buyers come looking for lll.mobi
i have a 'few' :biggrin:

great to see being used as a redirect alreadyMy guess that the name could be used in the sense of the acronym (regards -> greeting cards, MMS, chat) was wrong.
As Pred discovered there will be a use for ride share/car pool (MitFahrGelegenheiten). The buyer of mfg also owns mfz.mobi (MitFahrZentrale).

Carpooling seems to be a growing sector in Germany. Recently one or two other mobi start-ups in this sector have been presented here.

MFZ.mobi was sold in sedo by Mobility member in July or August.
The buyer is a big end user.

When more and more end users go .mobi, big cash will follow :)

Good Luck on Carpooling.mobi :laugh:Carpooling .mobi sold on SEDO now. 400,- € = ca. $570,-

Transfer still has to be started. A quicky like Christmas sale. Income will be used for some January renewals.

Good luck to the registrants of Carpool and Carsharing. Someone is collecting names out there.

This seems to be use of the Mobi extension to mean transportation - NOT directed particularly at mobile phones. I had never considered the possibility.

But heck, if they have the money, I'll sell to 'em.

I had never considered the possibility.Look here, another .mobi in transportation: petshipping .mobi and (German) tiertransport .mobi http://www.petshipping.com/de/latest/petshipping.mobi-ist-online.php

The mother is petshipping .com.

.mobi may not only stand for cell-/smartphone websites but might be the DN platform for any location changing purpose and dynamic processes in the future.
