Domain Name Wire reports of a record Sedo auction that netted over US$1.5M in .mobi domain names including the sale of music.mobi for US$616,000. Games.mobi sold for $401,500 and sports.mobi for $101,000, the only other six figure sale.
Domain Name Wire notes, Ã¢â¬ÅWith prices this high, major investors clearly took part in the auction. Both Ã¢â¬ÅmusicÃ¢â¬Â and Ã¢â¬ÅgamesÃ¢â¬Â are prevelant on mobile phones, so itÃ¢â¬â¢s no surprise that these domains sold for a premium. But these prices were unexpected by even many of the biggest .mobi promoters.Ã¢â¬Â
