South Korea’s mobile phone market is known as one of the world’s most vigorous, with 45 million users in a population of 49 million. However, smartphones has a relatively small share with huge growth potential.
South Korean telecom operator KT Corp has report that on Sunday it planned to begin selling Apple’s iPhone 4 this week amid growing competition to expand in the potentially lucrative smartphone market. KT, the country’s sole distributor for the gadget, plans to start sending out the gadgets on September 10 to around 270,000 customers who placed pre-orders. That is a huge number for Asians countries where it has stiff competition from Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics
KT, South Korea’s second-largest wireless operator, has sold about 890,000 iPhones since the market debut of earlier models last November.
And tens of thousands of people jammed the company’s website on August 18 as it started accepting online orders for the latest model of the popular smartphones.
The future prospect of Apple’s is brighter in Asia. What you say?
