At last iPhone launched in Korea

Posted by Channy Yun

At last, iPhone officially launched in Korea on Nov. 28th, 2009. iPhone consumers lined up at midnight to be among the first in the country to get their hands on it in front of launching event place.

Hundreds of people began to stand in line from midnight in front of Jamsil Stadium in Seoul, waiting until 2 p.m. to get their iPhones — made available only to 1,000 people who raffled online for early purchases.

Some 60,000 people who made online preorders over the past week will have their iPhones delivered starting Saturday, said KT, South Korea’s second largest mobile carrier.

KT is so far the only mobile carrier in the country to clinch a deal with Apple to sell iPhones and related mobile services.

iPhones will be available to other buyers at KT shops starting Dec. 1th, the mobile carrier said. The 32-gigabyte iPhone 3GS costs US$341 for customers who subscribe with a monthly service fee of US$38 with 500MB data and 200 min free calling plan. Of course various optional plan were offered too.

As followings are pictures of scenes in launching day.

Is there a non-simlocked, non-contract option? How much would be a 3gs 32, then?

I’ve got someone visiting the beautiful country until next saturday. Would be great if I could get one of these…

Do you know why Apple is not selling iTunes Gift Cards for the Korean App Store ?
