.tel domains - any thoughts

    The .tel domains become available to the public on 24th March - Is anyone thinking about using one?

    They are at a premium if you compare them to a normal domain registration (about £15 per year). You can see an example of one here http://www.emma.tel/

    I'm trying to work out who these would be worthwhile for. It would be nice to just give a business card out with the .tel address on it but you could just as easily do that now with a cheaper domain.

    The other worry is making such an easy avenue for spam/cold callers to find your details etc.

    any thoughts?

    It's not a bad idea, because you don't need hosting with them (I think) it's stores it in the DNS. If you're someone who doesn't want to maintain a website, it might be worth a look.
    Although I think it would be a spammers paradise :D
