South Korea’s SK Telecom finally hammered out its deal with Apple so it can start selling the iPhone 4 in South Korea on March 16. The cell service provider is promising “flexible tariff plans,” but hasn’t said yet exactly what those plans will include or cost.
Sk Telecom to sell iPhone 4
The carrier will begin accepting pre-registration for customers at 7AM on March 9. Customers can sign up for their iPhone 4 at the SK Telecom Web site and at the company’s retail locations.
Striking a deal with SK Telecom exposes the iPhone 4 means Apple now has two service providers in South Korea since it already offers the iPhone through KT Corp. Apple will also have access to about half of the country’s wireless market once SK Telecom starts selling the iPhone.
SK Telecom representatives said the carrier will release contract and pricing details “soon.”
