South Korea to be next iPhone country?

iPhone coming to Korea?

The iPhone 3G's next destination may well be South Korea, an update to Apple's main website has exposed. The Job Opportunities section lists an entry for a "Korean iPhone Account Manager," who will be expected to "manage the day to day issues of our chosen carrier, ensure healthy relationship and help develop the market." Apple does not currently sell iPhones in Korea, and it has not formally announced any plans.

The full-time position is based within the capital, Seoul, and is said to require five to seven years of experience with carriers. Reception of the iPhone could prove unique in Korea, as the country is home to two of the largest cellphone makers in world, LG and Samsung. The region also tends to be fiercely nationalistic in terms of purchases, and has often had technology years in advance of the US. 7.2Mbps HSPA has been available in Korea since last year, in contrast to most countries with the iPhone 3G, where 3.6Mbps is the peak. The country is also working to deploy 4G and even 5G broadband.
