Who'll be first

There's a post on thedomains.com on how ICANN will determine the processing order of all the newgLTD applications it will receive by April 2012. As per Berkens, the applications that will be processed last stand a good chance of being approved/delegated as much as a year after the first ones.

I've always assumed Verisign's would get processed first for two reasons : (i) they're "slamdunks" (ii) ICANN stated on multiple occasions that it would not allow the introduction of idn ccTLDs or idn gTLDs to have an unfair advantage over the other.

Re: Who'll be first

Nothing new there, althouhg it's good to hear it coming from someone from Verisign.
For someone who believes in the potential of indian languages idn's this guy isn't saying nothing that we didn't already know.
The fact that India hasn't yet launched it's ccTLDs IDN's it's also interesting in the sense that IDN.IDN TLD might actually be deployed first there unlike China or Russia, from there on it's anyone's game, the potential is huge...if you are willing to wait.

It's a cold dead fingers job from here on in.

Even if we did want to sell, we would not sell from the least developed languages first. That would make no sense.

Agreed, portfolio diversification is a must. Things will move at different paces and there will be some surprises no doubt.
