iPhone 4 Will Be Shipped To South Korea Later For Reasons Unknown


This Friday iPhone 4 will become available in 17 more countries, but South Korea will not be among them. Steve Jobs explained why:

"It's going to take us a little longer to get government approval there".

Korean government and people were discomfited by these words. According to The Wall Street journal, there is nothing to approve yet.

"The main communications regulator said last week that neither Apple nor KT [local iPhone carrier] had yet submitted the iPhone 4 for approval here".

Eventually some newspapers accused Apple and its CEO of not being honest about the actual reasons of the delay. Eugene Securities analyst Kim Dong-jun is assured that the problem is not in KT corp., as they are very interested in shipping iPhone 4 to the country:

"We don't know why it's been delayed, but one thing is that KT sold the phone very well and now wants to have a better profit from selling iPhone 4. Negotiations over sufficient supply must also be going on."

Anyway, Steve Park, who is an Apple's spokesman in Korea, didn't comment on the situation but said that the company is working on bringing iPhone to the country.
