Aron Meystedt of XF.com Investments acquires Tablets.com

tablets.com

Aron Meystedt who owns the first domain name ever registered on the internet (Symbolics.com), has acquired the domain name Tablets.com, according to the XF.com web site.

Aron’s company XF.com Investments, a domain holding and development company, also acquired Deadstock.com in a recent deal.

Tablets.com already has a WordPress site online that provides news and reviews of tablet pcs.   While the sale price of the domain is undisclosed, Tablets.com last traded owners publicly in 2006, when the domain name sold at Moniker/Traffic for $50,500.

XF.com Investments Making Buzz

Aron’s company made quite a buzz in 2010 with the 25th birthday celebration of the internet.  Symbolics.com was the subject of dozens and dozens of articles from heavy hitting news sources like TechCrunch and BusinessWeek.

XF.com Investments is continuing to expand, and Tablets.com is the perfect name to grow its business with the tablet being the next hottest gadget to hit the market in years – made hugely popular earlier this year with the launch of Apple’s iPad.

Whether the acquisition is a name the company will be ‘holding’ or ‘developing’, the tablet market is getting ready to explode with more players entering the market and more consumers looking to make the switch from the traditional pc. 

According to PCWorld:

The iPad started shipping in April and became an instant hit, and Apple reported selling more than 7 million iPads by the end of September. But companies such as Samsung and Toshiba are knocking on the door, and will soon release Android tablets that include features the iPad doesn’t have.

WOW. Just incrdible. What a great domain name to own. Talk about a smart move. Owning the generic domain name will probably be like owning insurance.com or Loans.com in the future. Any idea on what the paid for this name. Funny how no other blogs are talking about this. They are probably upset that they did not buy this name.

I bet this tablets.com name went for over 500k. If you have a tablet domain name don't sell it everyone wants to own tablet names. My guess this tablets.com will worth 50 million some day.

Nice buy in a growing market. They should make a comparison engine and do some peer rankings to really get the SEO juice going. I don't think a blog is the best use of this type of domain IMO

Aron is begging Google AdSense team to close his account by adding the wise "Tablets.com Buying" & "Sponsors" headings above the ads since it's 100% against AdSense TOS. I hope he removes asap. Sameh
