Will users not just use .com names on mobile devices?
I suspect people will default to the best, most useful website that can be viewed in a portable device and, from what I've seen, portable devices are getting pretty good at rendering websites - most of which reside at .com addresses.

Thanks for the feedback. At this point I think i'd rather continue to brand my domain.com for both web and mobile access. Thus far I have no problem detecting a mobile device and rendering a mobile version of my website when necessary.

If you ask me a lot of domainers are getting confused about the difference between the huge potential of the mobile internet and the limited potential of a new tld that was simply created to exploit it.
What we have been witnessing lately is just the "smart money" exploiting the huge potential of the mobile internet via the pump and dump of a domain extension. It would be wise for newer domainers to just stand aside and let the big boys and girls play their games because in the end, that's all it will prove to be.
Just like the stock market, the biggest players can manipulate and move markets thru their words and actions but in the end, after all the easy money has changed hands, it's the retail investor, the little guy, that is left holding the bag.
The the mobile internet does not need .mobi and neither do you :)
