11/28/2011, We all know that South Korea is one nation that is large on gaming – after all, this is a country where you have gaming leagues shown on national TV across different channels, so to see the provision of games hit the Android Market in that part of the world is definitely something. In fact, it has been two years since the first Android-powered device was made available in South […]
11/25/2011, It looks like South Korea is really keen on replacing the country’s workers with robotic counterparts. Earlier this year it was reported that cinema ticket sales would be handled by some robots in the country, and now it looks like robots will be taking over the jobs of prison guards in the future. Some new robots that have been developed in cooperation with the country’s justice ministry will be introduced […]
11/22/2011, The LG Optimus EX was unveiled sometime in September for the South Korean market, but unfortunately no pricing or release date was revealed and talk about the device has since died down.

11/15/2011, Sony Computer Entertainment Korea today announced that they would be taking the PSN offline for underage players. This is in compliance with the Shutdown Law in South Korea which prevents underage players from gaming for a six hour block at night.

Previously discovered earlier this week, the Optimus EX has now been spotted in higher quality press shot renders. The phone is headed to Korea and packs some pretty sweet specs.

09/21/2011, We just reported that South Korea would be getting the HTC Raider, a handset whose specs seem to rival that of the LG Optimus LTE (LU6200), and now it looks like South Korea will be getting yet another LG device, this time it is the LG Optimus EX (SU880) and it will be making its way onto SK Telecom.
09/21/2011, If yesterday’s official announcement of the HTC Rhyme failed to appeal to the male audience (not surprising considering the Rhyme was designed for the female audience in mind), not to worry as HTC has just announced another handset, this time in the form of the HTC Raider which by all accounts appears to be the competitor to the LG Optimus LTE (LU6200).
09/19/2011, Just last week we reported that SK Telecom in South Korea had plans to introduce an NFC enabled SIM card, which would allow NFC capabilities on just about any phone. Perhaps not wanting to be left out of the loop, or maybe it’s the NFC craze catching on in South Korea, but another South Korean carrier, KT (formerly known as Korea Telecom), has been reported to have plans to roll […]

08/26/2011, There have been tons of laptops popping up but if you’re living in South Korea and you’re looking for a “back to school” model, LG’s latest offering, the Aurora Xnote S series laptop could be something worth checking out.
08/22/2011, Smartphone users will probably be more than familiar with brands such as Samsung and LG and possibly even Pantech, phone brands which have come out of South Korea. It appears that the South Korean government have decided to start developing their own open-source smartphone operating system.
08/01/2011, We all love the internet as it allows us to do all sorts of things online, from reading internet memes, to catching up with old friends, video calls, funny YouTube videos, movie streaming, email, shopping, etc. The list of things we can do on the internet just seems to endless that there are times when we find it really hard to tear ourselves away from the screen.
07/04/2011, According to reports, the South Korean government is looking to digitize all textbooks for elementary, middle and high school students by 2015. On top of that, they are looking to create a cloud based system where students will be able to access data and software on their smartphones or tablets instead of using personal computers or heavier laptops. It sounds like a pretty good idea and one step towards the […]
