Apple’s iPad finally went on sale in South Korea this past Tuesday, and the release has generated quite a buzz.
KT, the sole provider of iPads and iPhones in Korea, said that a whopping 50,000 pre-orders for the iPad have been received since November 17th, and I expect this to rise steadily with the holiday season approaching.
According to KT spokesman Ham Young-Jin, “We’ve started distributing it nationwide. Customers are receiving their pre-ordered iPads at the moment.” As units are delivered and Koreans are amazed by the iPad, just as I was, I foresee sales numbers going through the roof. We’ll just have to wait and see how things pan out.
