One Million iPhones Sold in South Korea

It took the better part of a year, but Apple’s finally sold 1 million iPhones in South Korea. Korea Telecom, Apple’s (AAPL) exclusive carrier partner, announced the milestone earlier this week after selling the device for a full nine months. The announcement comes a little over a month after the iPhone 4 went on pre-sale in the country, overwhelming KT’s servers. With about 200,000 devices still back-ordered, the carrier expects to hit sales of 1.2 million by early next month.

“iPhone’s 1 million record is a symbol of smartphone’s popularisation,” said Pyo Hyun-myung, president of KT’s mobile business group. “[We're working to create] a ‘mobile wonderland,’ where anyone in the country can enjoy data services through unlimited Wi-Fi and unlimited 3G.”

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
